Healthy Printing @ International Cradle to Cradle Congress

Launching the B2B Materials Marketplace that improves supply chain performance & sales

The EPEA Materials Marketplace powered by Cradle to Cradle will scale up the use of products that have superior circular qualities. The online tool lets manufacturers, suppliers and customers accelerate circular performance across supply networks. We want to use this to strengthen and scale up healthy printing!

Want to learn more and be part of this new platform? Join us at the C2C Congress!

We read digitally more superficially, as a new study shows. Whoever reads texts on paper, understands more and can also reproduce the contents better afterwards. That is a big advantage for print! Find out more.
