Since their inception in 1999, 4OVER4.COM has shown a strong concern for the Environment, particularly through eco-friendly printing practices and programs aimed at salvaging the environment through the planting and replanting of trees. The new green initiative by the company, GREENTEAM, is expected to be their largest coordinated effort yet to solve environmental problems. “We have enjoyed many successes in our efforts to give back to the environment from which we take. And now, with GREENTEAM, our new Charitable Partnership program, we are going to be able to give back on a much larger scale to the environment, and we can only achieve this with the support of our friends in charitable and non-profit organizations focused on the Environment, Conservation and Sustainability.” – Taso Panagitopoulos, 4OVER4.COM.
GREENTEAM, the new charitable fund-raising program instituted by 4OVER4.COM, has been described by its organizers at 4OVER4.COM as “a unique opportunity for charitable organizations and non-profits to promote their activities and programs and contribute to sustaining the environment while deriving value from the green printing services offered by 4OVER4.COM.”
Quoting Mr. Panagitopoulos on the idea behind GREENTEAM: “The idea behind GREENTEAM is really simple ““ We recognize that access to quality printing services is vital to the activities of environmental charities and conservation groups since they need to promote their activities largely through print media, and as a green printing company, we are happy to step in and offer our eco-friendly printing services at special discounted rates, providing our partners in conservation with savings which can then be channeled towards their activities and programs. We are trying to raise funds for charitable organizations focused on the environment and conservation by offering special discounts on our green printing services. So in effect, GREENTEAM is an all-green collaborative effort between 4OVER4.COM and our friends in environmental conservation to raise funds to promote activities that will help save the environment.”
4OVER4.COM has been described by industry observers as leading the way with eco-friendly green printing, as demonstrated by their policies, which include: the use of green materials and processes to minimize the production of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), which are harmful to the environment and human health, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the use of vegetable-oil based, water-soluble washes for cleaning presses, which are free from VOC-producing petroleum solvents and can reduce VOCs by up to 90%, the use of color management practices and ink-key preset automation which reduces press make-ready times up to 70%, thus reducing paper waste, ink usage and VOC’s.
4OVER4.COM also has a 100% recycling policy on all wood, metal and paper waste ““ described by Panagitopoulos as “”¦saving thousands of trees each year, and millions of kilowatts of electricity and gallons of water ““ a big plus for conservation.”
4OVER4.COM does its printing on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified papers, and purchases goods only from suppliers who have demonstrated their commitment to environmentally friendly business practices.
The company, which holds Chain of Custody Certification from the FSC, has been hailed by many as a role model for green businesses, especially in the printing subsector.
Organizations participating in the GREENTEAM initiative will get a coupon from 4OVER4.COM which they can use to order printed products at a special discount rate. This discount can then be used in pursuit of their charitable activities while securing savings and other benefits for their members.
“By using our GREENTEAM coupon, participating organizations will get a percentage of every order, which will go towards the cause of those organizations. We have successfully done this in the past for other organizations and raised thousands of dollars for their causes.” Mr. Panagitopoulos stated.
4OVER4.COM has also said that it will create dedicated pages on its website for participating organizations as well as print brochures to be distributed to their membership for awareness purposes.
“We are helping our partners in conservation help the world by supporting their charitable activities through our special GREENTEAM discounts on our green printing services that go toward their activities and guarantees savings for their members,” says Panagitopoulos.
