Our Commitment to Responsible Practices

Walsworth has implemented green initiatives in our printing process, such as installing low-emission press equipment and using aluminum plates that are easily recyclable. We also use vibrant vegetable-based ink, which is not only safer for the environment but also simplifies the recycling process compared to traditional petroleum-based ink. Additionally, we recycle nearly 30 million pounds of fiber-based products annually, further reducing waste and promoting sustainability.

Our Commitment to Sustainable Forestry

Walsworth holds certifications with the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) program and the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) (FSC-C004755). Through every step of our manufacturing process, we adhere to our established chain of custody procedures. These procedures ensure that we purchase, track, produce and deliver products with raw materials harvested and produced from responsible and renewable sources.
