    Your are right he did not. I was just pointing out that HP was not a member.

    Hp removed them selves from the Paper and circular economy decades ago.

    The following link from 2 sides will help explain paper and the circular economy.

    Thing is, it's much cheaper and easier to "don't care" than to act the other way. Until governments are occupied with retaining and applying power (at least for 4-5 years) instead of 'governing', the industry and the circles pocketing the profits will do whatever they see fit.

    We, the people will have to stop waiting for laws and legislations change – we have to act by ourselves to end this whole madness. And, frankly, we don't have to start with HP inks and laminates. Start with excessive plastic usage (a current EU program). Reject all plastic which don't have a usage longer than a week. Use paper, textile for bags and package. Buy quality products which last longer instead of buying something new each week. And so on.

With all the prining firms in the world from what info I have gathered less the .5% are certified in any kind of green programs.

    As i have said before NO BODY CARES.
    Id have to agree with your statements. But its because of one main thing. Profits. Having these programs, paying for certifications, implementing heavy recycling all cost money. That eats into profits. Its easy for the workers and everyone to want to do the recycling. They still get paid for it. It cost owners money out of their pockets. That is why its hard to get people on board with recycling or "green printing".

    I tend to agree with you. Real environmental issues have been made invisible but I think a large part of the fault of this has been the over zealous and wrong effort by some environmentalists and climate alarm activists to put the emissions of CO2 as the one and only evil issue to be addresses or we will all die. I see no lack of printers who want to do lip service to their small emission footprint, even if many know it is mainly for marketing reasons.

    If people are pressured, by government, customers and activist shaming efforts, into dealing with non problems then that is going to affect dealing with real problems such as some of the chemical and deinking issues you have brought here for discussion.


    Every potential environmental issue can't be THE MOST important issue. Some rational prioritization is required.

In many discussions with the recycling associations, there was no give on changing anything is their processes. Why? It costs more money and there was no incentive to change. As someone stated earlier, locations doing recycling are not widespread and are limited in capacity. They can be very selective in their incoming waste. I will not pretend to have an answer, but I believe it we need a coordinated effort between Material, Machine, and Recycling Companies. As technologies change, ALL involved have to make changes as well.
    These issues have been known for 20 years and nothing has been done. No one has come to the plate offering any kind of solutions. I chose not to use an INdigo press went with toner based production for variable data and short runs of 200 or less which is recycleable. All other production is with offset.

    I feel like this is a much bigger deal and more concerning in countries other than the US. I know we're way behind europe and Canada as far as recycling goes, but I also know businesses are self driven. That means that if you put big restrictions on toner (plastic on paper) products, your going to have some major push back. It wouldn't go over well. But in all honesty, the local area I live and have my company in does not make it easy to recycle for our business. Like honestly its a huge PITA.
