Screen printing creates a lot of waste beyond chemicals and inks. Rags, unused ink, clean-up materials, empty containers, used film, cardboard boxes, and at least a dozen other items are thrown into the garbage daily. Keep in mind that many items can also be recycled or reused. Old or misprinted shirts can be cut into rags for cleaning, empty containers can be recycled, and used cardboard boxes can be reprinted for shop branding.
