Recently, one of our customers from Manning Architecture asked why we do what we do at Dolphin Blue. Our CEO, Thomas Kemper, answered that we do it to make sure our carbon footprint is small and our mission is to create a sustainable planet for future generations.
"I founded Dolphin Blue to provide only environmentally responsible office supplies and printed stationery.
Dolphin Blue has never provided any item to a customer which was not comprised of at least 30% post consumer recycled material. All the business cards, labels, letterhead and envelopes we've printed for Manning Architects have been produced on 100% post consumer recycled, certified processed chlorine free, FSC-certified paper, made carbon neutral with Green-E certified renewable wind energy.
If you're interested in knowing more about why we provide these products, please visit our site.
We only print on uncoated stock made of 100% post consumer recycled, certified-processed chlorine free, FSC-certified paper, made carbon neutral with Green-E certified renewable wind energy.
The reason we do not offer a glossy coated stationary is the following: Most coated papers for brochure stock and other coated, glossy collateral are being produced in China. I honestly don't know if a coated stock, made in the USA, is any longer available. When measuring ecological footprint, any gain in recovered or recycled fiber is lost many times over in fuel being used to transport, adding to that the resulting emissions, in paper being shipped here from China and other far-off shores. Offering products requiring an increase in carbon footprint is counterproductive to our mission of creating a sustainable planet for future generations.
I trust this will give you some comfort about what drives us at Dolphin Blue.
Thank you for caring enough about our planet's sustainability to ask the question."
We're very passionate about our products and about helping the Earth. If you have any questions for us, about anything, please do not hesitate to ask!
