Eco-Friendly Printed on Recycled Paper
1. A Conscious Basis
As Isaac Newton said: “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants”. This is exactly what becoming a PhD is all about. Innovation rooted in tradition. How beautiful it is to implement this principle in a dissertation. That is why GreenThesis uses recycled materials as a conscious basis for printing your thesis. In this way your dissertation becomes a beautiful whole, interwoven with the past, pointing forward to innovation.
An eye for design
2. Eco-Friendly Design
We’re happy to help you with the sustainable design of a cover for your thesis. All our designs are made with the environment in mind. From a hand-painted design to a photo collage with handprinted design, everything is possible. Feel free to contact us to discuss the possibilities.
In the case of hand-painted designs, we paint with homemade (vegan) watercolor paint on sustainable and vegan paper. Our founder Elma Hogeboom makes our handmade paint herself using environmentally-friendly pigments and natural materials such as clove oil, so that even the smell still refers to nature. Everything has been thought of.
If you let us design your cover, you will receive the original (or a print, in the case of a digitally designed cover) as a gift for your (office) wall. Framing can also be arranged in consultation (with parents, for example), for a beautiful lasting gift for your special day.
Attention to detail
3. Sustainable Printing
As a sustainable publishing company, GreenThesis works with printers who are eco-conscious as well as socially engaged. Sustainable printing goes further than a printing company that runs on renewable energy sources. From recycled materials to climate labels, we subject every printer to a thorough screening. This way you can trust that your thesis will be printed in an environmentally-friendly way, without the worry of having to figure everything out for yourself.
Planting for the planet
4. A Tree for a Hightree
We design and print all theses entrusted to GreenThesis with attention to sustainability and detail. But this is not where it ends. The ethos for our company is that sustainability goes beyond a clean production process; We want to have a positive impact on this world together with you. That is why GreenThesis plants a tree for each copy of each dissertation that is entrusted to us. So, for example, if you have 100 booklets printed, that’s 100 trees. We call that ‘a Tree for a Hightree’. (After our official name Hightree Sustainable B.V.)
Do you want to contribute to a greener world together with us? We cannot do this without you. That is why we hope we can help you design your thesis. In this way we work together towards a better, healthier and greener future.
