Printing company Oktoberdruck

Oktoberdruck is an example of a small printing company in Berlin which bridges the gap between the grass-root movement and business. Oktoberdruck was founded in 1973 by three students as a self-governing printing company. It is based on three fundamental ideas: Environmental compatibility, fair working conditions with a collective organization and product quality. The initiative is working towards a steady reduction of electricity, water and the use of chemicals and ecologically harmful substances and CO2 emissions.
