Fast-forward to 17 April, 2018, and the company has announced another new sustainability goal: “you print one, we’ll plant one”. In partnering with PrintReleaf, the company aims to helps its customers work toward a more sustainable future by enabling them the opportunity to contribute to the reforestation of global forests.
