These three aspects are key to eco-friendly printing. However, today everyone is looking at just the kind of media being used,” says Smart Bansal, DGM, Colorjet.

Major printing solutions companies like Colorjet are working on inks that are eco-friendly. “Inks happen to be a critical part because once the media gets chemically treated with ink it makes a difference in the decomposition proposition,” he says. ColorJet manufactures its ink according to the European compliance norms and are RHS certified.

Gluten and dairy restriction:OUR CHILDREN DESERVE BETTER!

When children experience respiratory, digestive, behaviour, or other health challenges, many parents naturally seek out dietary solutions. Unfortunately, the prevailing confusion in this area provides fertile ground for misconceptions and counterproductive dietary fads. Among contemporary trends, avoiding gluten and/ or dairy products are two of the most popular. Does taking your children off gluten or dairy really help? Do such recommendations rest upon fallacy or fact? As it turns out, though born of legitimate concerns, the impulse to discontinue gluten or dairy products is generally misguided, and may distract parents from truly important steps that can help kids to eat right, grow, and thrive.
