The Thoro Green Committee Recycle Contest Winner is Announced

Our Green Committee members held an internal contest. The challenge was to create something out of recycled material. All entries were judged on creativity, difficulty, the number of recycled materials used, and the ease of reproduction.

Our very own Jose Serna won first prize with his recreation of Rosie the Riveter. His masterpiece was created using 90% recycled material consisting of 13 different materials, including corrugated, various paperboards, rubber, plastic and wood. Jose also captured the spirit of Thoro Packaging, incorporating the importance of diversity, our woman-owned business status and our sustainability efforts.

Some of the topics covered will be “How improving the management of inks in a printing operation can save money, time and space, and reducing the amount of ink that must be disposed of.

Thoro leads our industry by understanding and minimizing the life cycle footprint of printed products and our customer’s impact on the environment.
