We care about the environment!

It’s no secret that paper production taxes forests, water, and energy supplies. In fact, eco-advocacy group Environmental Defense estimates that producing one ton of virgin uncoated paper — which accounts for 90 percent of the United States’ printing and writing paper — requires three tons of wood, 19,075 gallons of water, and generates 2,278 pounds of solid waste.

That’s why GOGO is committed to reducing our environmental footprint. We have dedicated ourselves to strictly following industry standards. We even remind our government clients that the Environmental Protection Agency mandates that federal agencies must use uncoated printing and writing papers containing at least 30 percent PCW (post-consumer waste) content; coated papers must contain 10 percent.

We have taken the following steps to become eco-friendly:

INK
GOGO uses vegetable and soy-based inks instead of petroleum-based inks. These alternatives are both low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and competitively priced. When using Pantone colors — an industry standard — we avoid colors (mostly metallics and warm reds) that contain barium, copper, and zinc, which can cause health problems in humans.

PAPER
The majority of our paper used in bound projects is 100% post-consumer waste (PCW), processed chlorine free (PCF), uncoated, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, and is made by renewable energy sources like wind or solar power.

Have your own paper? GOGO allows you to bring in the paper of your choice to ensure that you, as the customer, are doing your part to preserve the environment.

TECHNOLOGY
GOGO’s easy-to-use file transmission technologies are quick (and free!), allowing us to collaborate with you regardless of your location. We will always allow you to upload files directly to our site and we will then ship the printed materials to you, if necessary.

With our document scanning abilities, GOGO is striving to reduce the need for paper usage. GOGO can convert your documents into electronic images in order to reclaim office space, organize documents for easy retrieval, simplify disaster recovery, and most importantly, reduce your company’s environmental impact. Going paperless is the first step in transforming the documents you hate into digital files that the environment will love you for!
