Messiah College Press is proud to provide environmentally friendly printing and copying services to our campus. We view this responsibility not as something "nice to do" but as something we "must do". We are committed to responsibly balancing the need for high-quality, affordable printing with environmental concerns such as proper disposal of chemicals, consistent use of post-consumer recycled paper, and printing with inks that are free from toxic metal pigments. College Press only utilizes environmentally certified papers. Our suppliers work closely with organizations which manage certification systems for the trees which are harvested for the fabrication of our paper products. The intent is to eliminate habitat destruction, water pollution, displacement of indigenous peoples, and violence against people and wildlife that often accompanies logging. In addition, they work with loggers, foresters, environmentalists, and sociologists to guide forest management toward sustainable outcomes. The certification logos on our paper cartons and wrappers assure us that the pulp in every sheet of paper purchased through, or provided by Messiah College Press, comes from responsibly managed forests.
