As part of our commitment to Environmentally Friendly Practices all Posters and Postcards sold on GoArt.com and on the GoArt-Network are made only from recycled materials that come from sustainable forests. We choose only conservation papers that are Acid Free, PH neutral and chlorine free. We use only (TCF) archival type papers that surpass the requirements of ISO 9706 for permanent paper. Only approved chemicals are used in the production and compliance with recommendations XXXVI of the 'Paper and Board for Food Contact' of the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, Germany. The papers on which our products are made are suitable for direct contact with dry and fatty foodstuffs and surpass the purity Acts requirements for (heavy metal content) of the EN 71-3, 'Toy Safety Act' as well as Part 3 of the Migration of Certain Elements (Oct. 2002). If a product is wrapped in cellophane then we use only wrapping made of corn cellulose. Please note we are not a paper manufacturer but we do choose only suppliers who meet the strictest international environmental standards and adhere to forest management practices. This we control within our quality-control-management scheme and have no hesitation what-so-ever in choosing another company, even if it means paying higher prices. Our product line and quality assurance to you is of the highest priority to us and is treated with the utmost integrity, that is why GoArt.com Posters & Postcards are considered some of the worlds best. We are open minded and are continually looking at new ways of reducing our carbon emission or imprint on the planet, this may include using papers that are made of wind power or where little or no oil is used as possible. Like any company, our activity has an impact on the environment and our belief is that we have a fundamental responsibility to the planet and nature by creating a virtuous circle. A virtuous circle is where the minimization of waste is gained and a maximization of reducing our carbon foot-print on the environment is achieved. The daily workings of the company have also seen many changes and today our office is virtually paper-free through the use of information technology. If you have an idea or vision that you would like to share with us as part of our environmental policy then we would love to hear from you!
