Our Green Routine
Recycling is a must for Art & Negative, our waste solvent is sent to a certified handler and recycler of chemicals. This ensures that none of our waste makes its way into our ecosystem. In 2010 we installed an AGFA Azura TS Plate System. This system utilizes biodegradable gum to clean and gum the printing plate in one step, eliminating the use of chemicals and considerably reducing water and waste usage.
We also recycle all paper used at our facility. From the front office to shipping, every scrap of paper is recycled. Every week an entire truck load is recycled by Art & Negative. This equates to 24,000 pounds of paper a week which saves 10,608 trees per year.
