Two More Weeks Until Earth Day: CatPrint’s MOST Eco-Friendly Paper Options!

Every year, Earth Day lands on the date of April 22nd.

This year’s Earth Day will be the 45th celebrated Earth Day in history! Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22nd, 1970 as a day for global environmental awareness.

As you may or may not already know, CatPrint is a White Badge Partner with TerraPass. This means that when you print with CatPrint, you are engaging in green eco-friendly printing
