Minimizing environmental impact is a core value here at Moontree, and we are proud of our extremely small carbon footprint. Year by year, we are increasing our commitment to eco-friendly methods of production. With platemaker, guillotine cutter, presses and supporting equipment fully on site, we have eliminated emissions from outsourcing any phase of production. Following production, all letterpress plates and paper scraps are recycled.
Our in-house paper stock is made from 100% recycled, acid-free rag cotton. This stock is tree-free. Any scraps left over from production are saved for year-end holiday tag printing. And scraps less than 1" are shredded and composted.
The "official flock" of Moontree Letterpress includes nine beloved Rhode Island Red hens. In addition to providing a world-class breakfast each morning, their manure is combined with shredded stock scraps to create spectacular compost. Not too many letterpress companies are mentioning chicken poop on their websites, but there you go.
