make your Library newsletter “green”

Still producing a printed newsletter? Worried about how “green” your publication is? American Libraries recently ran a story with tips on simple ways to make your newsletter greener.

They really are simple.

Here are some of the tips provided:

  • Limit the number of pages of each issue or find a way to print fewer pages.
  • Start using recycled paper, ideally made with at least 80% recycled content.
  • Instead of full-color, publish in black and white or two-color.
  • Skip the glossy paper. 
  • Get a handle on the number of copies you print of each issue; don’t waste issues.
  • Find a printer who embraces green printing practices.
