100% Renewable Energy
100% of the energy we use every day comes from a renewable and carbon-free source: wind! We are located just two miles away from one of the largest wind farms in the Rocky Mountains. All our stunning print products are created with 100% renewable, 100% carbon-free energy.
Eventgroove’s commitment to reducing climate impact is demonstrated through 100% carbon-neutral domestic shipping. Carbon-neutral projects have included reforestation, landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment, and methane destruction.
Sustainable Web Hosting
Eventgroove’s web hosting service is generated by 100% hydroelectric power. Based in Oregon, our web hosting service uses sustainable hydroelectric power and cools using natural air instead of air conditioners.
FSC® Certified Products
We are FSC® certified. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests. FSC® certification ensures responsible use of forest resources, including paper made from trees acquired from sustainable forests.
Beautiful Recycled Paper
We use 80% recycled paper, bleached without the use of chlorine. We searched and tested to find the perfect recycled paper that would not compromise on quality, and we found it! Our recycled paper uses at least 80% post-consumer materials, helping to mitigate the impact on the environment.
Efficient Operations = Less Energy Consumption
Our quality assurance programs ensure minimal paper byproduct and have helped us reduce paper and toner consumption. In fact, reprints are less than 0.5% of total sales. Efficient overall operations ensures conservation of electricity. We also have a robust telecommuting program—60% of us work remote .
EA Toner is chemical toner prepared by Emulsion Aggregation, a chemical process used to “grow” very small, uniform particle sizes from even smaller (sub-micron) size toner components. This small size and the relative uniformity of all the particles in a particular “batch” of EA Toner is more predictable than the conventional mechanical process of pulverizing extruded plastic for toner. It is also less energy intensive to produce and printing uses 45% less toner.
We recycle all paper byproduct from our operations as well as all cardboard and paper from packaging and shipping. Instead of going into landfills, Eventgroove rigorously collects and recycles unreusable paper products. The EPA cites landfills as the single largest source of methane emissions to the atmosphere and the decomposition of paper as one of the most significant sources of landfill methane.
0.5% of our revenue is donated to carbon removal. Eventgroove uses Stripe as our payment processor. Thanks to Stripe Climate, we’re able to automatically contribute 0.5% of our revenue to vetted carbon removal initiatives from our Stripe dashboard.
