Vegan Printing Ink
The vegetable and soy that’s grown as ink crops help to fix nitrogen into the soil their grown. Meaning that the fields stay healthy and fertile for the next crop.
Interestingly, vegetable-based inks are also easier to remove from packaging and labels. Meaning that the end product is easier to recycle at the end of its life.
Petroleum-based inks not only create more carbon emissions when they’re manufactured, but they also contain heavy metals including lead and mercury. Both of which are harmful to humans and the environment. Guess what, vegetable inks don’t carry any of these nasties.
A study of vegetable-based vs petroleum-based ink published in the Journal of Applied Biomaterials and Functional Materials found that linseed-soybean oil-based ink are the most vibrant. And vegetable inks containing linseed oil are glossier on all types of paper. The report finished with a recommendation that vegetable-based inks should replace petroleum-derived mineral oil-based inks due to their quality, environmental and health benefits, and comparable costs.
