Since summer 2019, Seacourt and JB have built a partnership that includes creating circular printing guidance for the cultural sector, providing advice on how to reopen cultural venues safely in response to Covid, and hosting drop-in advice sessions during events and workshops.
We know the creative sector is perfectly positioned in helping generate significant awareness and engagement around the unprecedented threat of global climate change and we believe Seacourt can help.
Seacourt and Julie’s Bicycle are proud to be working together, supporting the creative sector to take action against the climate and environmental crisis. It’s no longer enough for organisations to do less harm, we need to do more good. Planet Positive Printing does just that, making sure your printed materials (from small to large) have a positive impact on the environment and society.
Historically, the print industry is heavily polluting and damaging to our environment. But Seacourt’s unique approach has turned this around with Planet Positive Printing. They are a Net Positive business, meaning they give back more than they consume and are proud to offer 100% waterless printing with zero chemicals, VOC free inks, zero waste to landfill and closed loop lifecycle of every product, all wrapped up in a carbon positive factory running on 100% renewable energy.
