What is an Eco-friendly, Bio-renewable Ink?
A bio-renewable ink contains materials derived from living organisms such as trees, plants, insects, and/or animal materials. These can include resins, gums, oils, waxes, solvents, and other polymer building blocks. The bio (carbon) content is based on the amount of biogenic carbon present. It is considered eco-friendly because it replaces petrochemically derived ingredients reducing the negative impact to the environment with a smaller carbon footprint.
