We believe that the world, Australia and business need to help bring the earth back into balance – and that whatever we can do, no matter how small, adds to the overall solution. We believe in climate change and that this is becoming more of a concern not just for us now, but for our animals, forests and future generations.
There is value in changing how we work, live and play, and this has more than just an environmental impact – it provides the business world vast opportunity for new industry, new sectors and profitability.
In line with these values, Blick offers a 5% discount to environmental organisations for in-house services (as well as government, not-for-profit and community organisations).
In recent years, Blick has worked with wind energy turbine farms, solar energy companies, environmental science initiatives, tree-planting and seedling companies, and organisations providing and raising funds for investment into protecting and aiding wildlife.
All paper that we print on in-house is 100% post-consumer recycled paper, we use Who gives a crap? toilet paper (because we do), and we are a fair-trade certified workplace, drinking only fair-trade coffee and tea (and occasionally indulging in fair-trade chocolate). Most of us also ride pushbikes, eBikes or catch public transport to the Blick office in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint.
Working with Tree Project Australia and Parks Victoria, we also have an annual Blick tree-planting day, where we invite others to join in to plant more than 1000 trees in areas across Victoria. This revegetation work – which aids in soil stabilisation and helps provide habitat for bushland birds and other indigenous plant and animal species – is one way we can contribute to offsetting the impact of some of our work.
Blick’s printing practices include:
We can guide clients in the latest developments in environmentally sustainable printing choices, and proudly support business activities that use sound environmental and ecological practices.
