Over the centuries, mankind has used the printed word as a way to exchange ideas, share histories, keep records, and entertain others. As the world became more digital, many assumed that printing would become essentially obsolete.
The truth is that printing remains as important today as it was decades ago. In fact, businesses and consumers print trillions of pages each year. In the U.S. alone, a typical office worker prints 10,000 pages per year.*
What has changed is the way people think about printing and the potential impact their actions may have on the environment.
More than two-thirds of the world’s land area and more than half of the world’s population have no direct access to paved roads. How then do you access remote sites safely, affordably and with a small environmental footprint?

Shipping containers filled with this crop would leave the port city of Sao Paulo and begin the over 9,000-mile journey to central Asia. As one would imagine, this lengthy journey across two oceans and around the continent of Africa leads to a sizable carbon footprint. Nepal serves as an example of how growing closer, can help modern agriculture make progress in conserving energy—but how?
