Solopress has announced an initiative that enables customers to order carbon-neutral print on its most popular products. Following the introduction of the eco-friendly Solopress Green range, the new scheme and makes carbon offsetting options accessible at checkout.

Available on a selection of the Southend-on-Sea based online printer’s best-selling products such as flat and folded flyers and leaflets, business cards, brochures and books, customers can now choose to offset the carbon footprint of their orders through contributions to projects aimed at reducing greenhouse gases.

At checkout, customers can opt to ‘Make this order Carbon Neutral’, pledging their support for projects such as woodland protection and tree planting in the UK, facilitating clean drinking water in Eritrea, or contributing to projects that address the problem of ocean plastic. The contribution quoted with each eligible order from Solopress is calculated to balance the amount of carbon dioxide put into the atmosphere during production.

Solopress managing director Simon Cooper commented, ‘We believe in providing our customers with the ability to make a positive impact on the environment. This feature empowers them to engage in carbon offsetting when purchasing our products, furthering our collective efforts in the fight against climate change.

‘The significant amount of work that’s gone into this project underscores our commitment to sustainable business practices and the environment. Since soft launching the scheme, we’ve been delighted with the levels of uptake we’ve seen. It’s an encouraging vindication of our customers’ willingness to support worldwide efforts to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.’
