In 2023 we launched a partnership with PrintReleaf, the world’s first sustainability platform that automatically converts our paper footprint into actual trees. Anytime you print with MITCHELL, you actively replant trees in forests that need it most around the world, resulting in a net positive environmental impact.

With PrintReleaf, forest resources can be offset with certified reforestation projects that are designated for conservation and restoration. Through PrintReleaf’s verified reforestation process, they guarantee 100% net survival of the trees planted. When you work with Mitchell, you can reforest... one print job at a time.
