Choose your ink (bio)
It is interesting to note that: if National (American) Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers is working to make printing inks more sustainable for the environment, it must be a good (and necessary!) idea.
The BRC program is voluntary. The printing ink manufacturers can join it or not.
Another note: in the NAPIM website there is the list of ink manufacturers and printing inks (the products!) that have joined the BRC program and that already have a BRC Index certification (so you can read which inks are made with a high percentage of renewable materials).
Publishers!!! Please take note! (you can ask to your printer: please use a high -60 or 70 or 80- BRC Index printing ink for our next books. - Remember: the printers can do it! It is not impossible. And don't think that these inks are very expensive.)
