Our commitment to being green will continue to require investigation and testing, not only with the facilities we open, but with the machinery we use and the software that drives the workflow.
Something unique to JONDO is that we are a just-in-time, print-on-demand manufacturer. Our twelve regional, standardized facilities around the world allow us to reduce unnecessary transit of products across vast distances while our supply chain incorporates environmentally conscious materials. This results in both a sustainable and viable business model.
Here at JONDO, our goals are not only to decrease our environmental impact, but to empower people to display their values and beliefs, through quality products that can be shared with future generations to come.

Our Impact On Air Quality
JONDO’s twelve regional facilities in key regions across 6 countries allow us to fulfill orders closer to the end user while reducing the use of resources and transportation emissions on a global scale.
A carbon footprint is “the total greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product”¹. The average U.S. household has an annual carbon footprint of approximately 48 tons ¹.
By having our facilities strategically located around the world, JONDO has been able to decrease our carbon footprint by more than 3,000 tons on an annual basis.
We look forward to reducing our carbon footprint substantially as JONDO continues to expand.

Environmentally Friendly Manufacturing
Water-based latex inks are non-hazardous, non-toxic, non-flammable inks that reduce a variety of environmental, health and safety concerns.
JONDO uses inks that are UL certified GREENGUARD GOLD based on the high air quality standards used for hospitals and schools.
Through latex inks and the use of our own specially formulated canvas that meets California’s stringent Prop 65 standards, we are able to produce high quality prints while achieving the lowest amount of volatile organic compounds (VOC) of any digital printer.
We are proud to say that we are part of a handful of manufacturers that use wood from FSC certified sustainable forests.
Specific trees are grown to maximize the yield of stretcher bars. For every tree that is harvested, at least one additional tree is planted or allowed to regenerate naturally.
Additionally, the JONDO manufacturing process reduces the amount of wood scraps through optimized cutting techniques.
JONDO uses 28% less cardboard than the industry standard through custom boxes created with recycled materials designed to fit each product.
Specialized machinery in all facilities allows us to reduce the use of tape, plastic, and other packaging materials for all shipments.
Green Company Culture
Electric Vehicle Charging
Our headquarters in Southern California is piloting our new electric vehicle charging stations, which have already shown to be a great success by providing free access to employees with BEV or PHEV vehicles. This is an ever expanding program.
Water Bottle Refill
Employees have onsite access to water refill stations that replenish their reusable water bottles and canteens. This program enables our facilities to prevent over 200,000 plastic water bottles from being discarded annually.
Several of our facilities have a community garden where employees can grow seasonal fruits and vegetables. These are enjoyed at home as well as in the office.
Farm-to-table gardening has many benefits which include having fresher, more nutritious foods¹. By growing our own food and composting, we help eliminate the chemicals that not only pollute the food we eat, but also the air we breathe.

JONDO remains committed to having a positive environmental impact to ensure that our customers can grow their businesses in a faster, smarter, and greener way.
By recycling unused materials, we can reduce waste that ends up in landfills. This program also helps to educate employees on the importance of recycling and the use of sustainable products at work and at home.
JONDO is committed to becoming the first carbon neutral print-on-demand company on a global basis.
This is a goal we are continuously working toward and believe we will be able to achieve in the near future.
