Environmental Policy

At Aesthetica we really care about the environment. In our office we recycle and reuse our paper, envelopes, ink cartridges and office supplies.

The printer of Aesthetica Magazine is certified by various schemes that meet the highest environmental forestry sector standards. Their achievements to date include: 22% reduction in energy use through investing in the most up to date technology. Eliminating the use of the solvent laden IPA (alcohol) on printing presses, and reduction in landfill waste down from 30 tonnes per week 10 years ago to less than six tonnes every six weeks. They aim to achieve zero waste to landfill within the next 18 months.

Aesthetica is printed on paper from mills that get their wood from managed forests, and are recognised for reducing or eliminating chlorine bleaching methods. The ink used is a vegetable based ink, which reduces chemical wastage.

We encourage you to recycle Aesthetica Magazine when you’re finished reading it or pass it on to a friend.
