“More and more customers – from independents through to Paperchase and National Trust – are asking us as publishers how green our products are both at shows and in follow ups,” says Lizzie. “As publishers we are trying to strike a balance between cost and sustainability while looking at all the facts.”

Penguin Ink is making the switch to 100% recycled stocks.

With this in mind Lizzie is now in the process of switching all her products over to 100% recycled stocks.

“I’ve switched to 100% recycled envelopes, launching the new ones at Autumn Fair and I’m also looking at changing my paper from part-recycled to 100% recycled and changing my cellos from 100% recyclable to compostable ones from Eco Kraft,” says Lizzie.
