Best Western Richmond goes green

27 10 2007





Green Printer is pleased to announce that we will be working closely with Best Western Richmond to help them go green. The first step is an eco audit, which will assess their current needs and make recommendations for improving the sustainability of their printing.

The switch to Green Printer is one of the hotel’s Green Committee initiatives, led by Wendy Hargreaves, Director of Sales & Marketing. We would like to congratulate the popular hotel chain, which is exploring ways that they can be more eco friendly in all areas of their business. The hotel will display Green Printer’s “Tree Counter” on their website, which will keep track of the number of trees they have saved – a great reminder of their positive difference they are making!
