Sustainable Business Practices
A business that began repairing old books for collectors, booksellers, and libraries, Bessenberg Bindery stresses quality in the binding process, creating products that will last for generations and stay out of the waste stream for as long as possible. They work closely with their clients and are willing to order recycled content paper if requested. The Bindery also recycles everything they can and reuses paper that is unusable in the binding process to package and protect the finished product during delivery. With few staff members, any changes or improvements in waste reduction and recycling practices are openly communicated by a designated employee.
