Tufts Prints Green

Tufts is committed to an environmentally responsible approach in all its printing.

The Offices of Sustainability, Purchasing, and Publications have worked collaboratively to set guidelines and implement an ongoing program that assures the university adheres to high standards and works toward continuous improvement.

Current Efforts

A number of initiatives are already in place:

  • All office copiers now have 2-sided copies as their default setting. This greatly reduces the more than 16 million copies produced by the university annually.
  • Purchasing buys recycled copy paper at the same price as paper produced without post consumer waste content.
  • Publications and Purchasing have found cost-effective recycled stocks for a range of print products from brochures to booklets.
  • All Tufts stationary and envelopes ordered through Staples and Printing Services are now 30% post consumer waste and carry the TuftsPrintsGreen word mark to raise awareness of Tufts efforts.
  • All university magazines are printed on recycled stock and carry our new TuftsPrintsGreen logo.
  • The Publications Department will help advise you on cost effective, environmentally sound paper stock options and other strategies for producing green print products.
  • Publications will consult with you on your next print piece to find the environmentally responsible solution that may save you money while saving the environment.
