Introducing New Sustainable Label Printing from Jul 25, 2014 09:01PM

Benton City, WA (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

When presented with printing a label, first the designer should ask if the label printer uses renewable energy or utilize other sustainable solutions. This can greatly reduce the environmental footprint of a label printer, like in Tricities, WA.

For a printed label there are steps one can take to reduce the environmental footprint. The following are helpful when making these decisions:

Working with local vendors

Doing business with nearby vendors helps support the local economy and reduces ozone-depleting emissions from shipping. Hire printers less than 100 miles of final destination to limit transportation carbon footprint. is located less than 100 miles from the Tricities, Prosser, Yakima, Wenatchee, and Walla Walla, WA as well as from Pendleton, Boardman and Hermiston, OR.

Ask to optimize the label size for the size of the press sheet and/or web to minimize waste that utilizes more resources than prudent.

Labels made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper is best. This is made with paper from recycling programs, which reduces paper headed to landfills and eliminates the need for cutting trees. Each ton of 100% post-consumer recycled fiber that replaces a ton of virgin fiber saves between 12 and 24 trees. Ask about 100% recycled paper labels.

Ask for labels that comply with the Stewardship Council (FSC), Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) for children, California Proposition 65.

Poly label considerations

Poly labels can contain toxic chemicals and heavy metals. Therefore, EU safety compliant poly labels are the most eco-friendly option available.

Rippedsheets has RoHS, WEEE, CONEG, and REACH which reduce heavy metals in label products to make the media safe.
Also has US Consumer Protection Child Safety Law under 12 years old verified poly labels.

Label Printing

Electronic files are accepted in order to reduce materials use (non-reusable media) and fuel in transporting. also has a formal waste reduction policy and tracks their waste. They also have a formal eco-preferable purchasing policy in operation. RoHS and REACH compliant digital printing toners are used for print jobs.

Other Inks and coatings uses water based Flexo inks and aqueous coatings which contain less VOCs and IPA solvents than traditional petroleum-based inks. Vegetable-based inks are also easier to clean up and to de-ink, which makes the printed product easier to recycle. Label printing presses are cleaned with water-based cleaners and low VOC cleaners.

Eco-Designing Labels

Minimizing ink coverage is another step to creating a more eco-friendly piece. This reduces label media used and avoiding full bleeds reduces ink and media use as well. uses Water-based aqueous coatings are the most environmentally-friendly option for a protective layer.

Packaging uses recycled packaging materials and packages are packed to fill the container to reduce its shipping volume with the carrier. Better packed shipping cartons reduce freight costs beginning in 2015.

Lt. Col. Shaye Molendyke Brings Expertise to Ft. Hood Army Post Jul 25, 2014 09:00PM

(PRWEB) July 25, 2014

YogaFit® Training Systems Worldwide is proud to announce that Lt. Col. Shaye Molendyke will be offering a two-day "Yogafit for Warriors" workshop at Ft. Hood Army Post in Killeen, Texas from September 20th to 21st. The goal of the complimentary workshop is to help heal military personnel suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in the wake of the 2009 and 2014 Ft. Hood shootings.

Molendyke is a 23 year veteran, a military spouse, mother and former Marine "BRAT." Lt. Col. Shaye is a Master Yoga Trainer for YogaFit with over 3,000 hours teaching experience. She has conducted numerous teacher training workshops to include, yoga for the back, Prenatal, Seniors and Kids. She is the creator and director of the YogaFit for Warriors Program which aims to help veterans and their families who are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as combat stress from the long years at war at home and abroad.

The Ft Hood workshop will also be open to local yoga teachers, as well as mental health experts, social workers and other members of the community who are in the best possible position to help those affected by the shootings. Everyone at YogaFit is excited to bring the healing power of yoga to a community in recovery.

YogaFit for Warriors helps calm troubling emotions, thought patterns, chronic tension, and ease suffering from the result of emotional or physical trauma, like PTSD. The program employs safe, trauma-sensitive yoga to heal a warrior's body, mind and spirit.

When trauma occurs, the body keeps score: the brain rewires itself around the traumatic event and the memories get stored in the tissues throughout the entire body. The regular practice of yoga can help to free up troubling emotions, persevering thought patterns, chronic somatic tension and hyper vigilance. New research is showing how yoga can reduce cortisol levels and calm the fight-or-flight response while also increasing the relaxation response.

By using transformational language, slower movements and focused breathing exercises as well as meditation imagery techniques addressing PTSD, YogaFit for Warriors eases the mind and body from traumatic brain injury and other common issues that develop in military settings.

The workshop highlights the somatic component of anxiety and depression while teaching breathing and meditation practices to help relax the body and mind. It also explores restorative yoga postures, breathing techniques and other complementary techniques to soothe the fight-or-flight response.
