As the environmental impact of global commerce and industry has become more obvious to everyone, we believe that every business should participate in mitigating these effects. As a manufacturer of 100% water-based inks, Buzz Sales Company understands and embraces the concerns about protecting the environment and we are continually striving to do our part to be as neutral as possible in how we conduct our business. Toward this end, we proactively seek to develop new products and procedures within our organization to help to reduce or eliminate any negative impact on the environment in effective and meaningful ways.
Water-based Engraving Inks by Buzz are a breed apart from most all other inks for printing, even soy-based inks. For more than 50 years our inks have played an integral role in making intaglio printing (engraving) the most environmentally friendly of all printing processes. We have pioneered the use of environmentally preferable solutions in our industry and we are putting our beliefs and our ideas to work:
Solvent-based inks, used in most all other forms of printing, contain inherently high levels of VOCs, which are linked to ozone depletion and air pollution. They also create issues in the de-inking processes used to recycle printed paper. Water-based engraving inks are relatively easy to de-ink.Environmental concerns about printing don’t end with just the choice of paper. Having your identity materials and other graphics engraved is the best choice to be the most environmentally responsible. Specifying water-based inks by Buzz further affirms that choice and your commitment to a cleaner, more sustainable world.
