We Think in Ink is also committed to caring for the environment. While it’s common to think of printers as killing trees for the paper they use, We Think in Ink has begun the process of replenishing Virginia’s forests.
Owner Chip Tompkins says, “Most printers recycle their waste, but we wanted to replant the trees that come down to make the paper we use.”
Putting that concept into practice Tompkins has purchased 20,000 trees from the Virginia Department of Forestry. These he has donated to 4-H clubs around the Commonwealth to help restore the forests and Virginia’s watersheds. He also delivered saplings to some of his major clients so that they can share in the efforts.
Tompkins has a goal of making his business carbon neutral; he says “We want to promote environmental and corporate responsibility.” He was actually inspired to think about recycling when he was Chairman of the Retail Merchants Association Retailers for Life program. This program educates the public regarding the importance of organ donation. Tompkins said that working with that program made him stop and think about how he could incorporate that concept into his own life and business.
He seems to have done that. Right in the Center of the Universe for all to see.
