The Environmental Excellence Awards recognize commercial printers who are leading the industry in environmentally conscious manufacturing.
The product printed by Cary Printing was The Colton Review for Meredith College of Raleigh, NC. The Colton Review is Meredith College's annual literary and art journal.
Meredith College had a goal to print their book green, while reducing printing costs. Cary Printing's Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mark Bryant, conveyed "that the planning and production team at Cary Printing made suggestions to reduce the actual physical size of The Colton Review. This resulted in paper savings. The journal was then printed as green certified and saved thousands of pounds of wood."
