Behind the Design (Part 3)

The third part of my design story is about Mosaic, the printing company for my labels.  (If you want to catch up on Part 1 and Part 2 I encourage you to do so.  I’ll be here when you get back.)  Ready?

My design team at RoundPeg Communications highly recommended Mosaic as the premier printer in the area, as well as having a long list of their environmental stewardship including facts such as:

they are 100% carbon neutral through wind power and reforestation
they have used waterless printing for 15 years
they are FSC® Certified
they use soy ink
they recycle 1,200 pounds of paper, plastic and aluminum each year
they are an EPA Climate Leaders Program Partner

. . . and the list goes on.  Plus, the fact that they are located in Cheverly, MD means they are also a local company.  Bonus environmental points.

They were not the least expensive printing option, but their commitment to quality and the environment, as well as their employees and heritage, really resonates with the mission at Goldilocks Goodies and is another integral piece of my promise to deliver treats you can feel good about eating and sharing.  Opening up a bag of delicious cookies that are made with care and real, whole foods, while admiring a design and label that was made with the same care by people that care about the social and environmental impact of their work .. .  My hope is that you take time to reflect on the labor and ingredients of the food you’re consuming.  A call for greater transparency in our food supply chain is one I welcome and urge you to look into for all the foods that you eat.  It makes a difference to small, family-owned farmers and businesses, and I personally believe it makes a difference in your overall health.

Or you can just dive into a big bag of cookies and enjoy them for their delicious taste.  That’s fine, too.
