As a leading manufacturer and printer, we are deeply committed to responsible production in all of our facilities, focusing on reducing our overall environmental footprint while continuing to delight our customers around the world.
To reduce our environmental footprint, we are investing in efforts that increase our efficiency and reduce our Scope 1 and 2 emissions, increasing our diversion efforts, and introducing sustainable best-practices and materials.

Donated 21 Tons (41,467 Pounds) of product (instead of recycling or landfill) to our local and national non-profit partners. These non-profits and schools are able to take material that can no longer be used in our production, and turn them into works of art. Giving this material a second life keeps it out of the landfill and in good hands. Turning Trash into Treasures
The Spoonflower brand provides the option of recycled canvas fabric, Repreve, positively impacting the environment by participating in the Circular Economy, an industrial system that is restorative or regenerative by intention and design. Through this fabric Spoonflower customers have supported the recycling of more than 35 billion bottles through the sales of Repreve fabric.
Shutterfly's primary material is paper. Since this input is so critical to our business and the planet, Shutterfly is committed to always sourcing the paper responsibly, through sources that are never engaging in controversial human rights or forest practices.
Shutterfly’s production sites engage in regular preventive maintenance on high-demand equipment to ensure that they are functioning efficiently.
To reduce the electricity used for lighting, Shutterfly uses motion-sensors where feasible and has several facilities retrofitted with LED lighting.
In addition to standard industrial recycling, many production sites participate in supplier consumable take-back programs, such as the HP Planet Program, Xerox Green World Alliance, Konica Minolta cartridge recycling. This drives the 78% diversion rate achieved by the manufacturing platform in 2022.
The BorrowLenses brand minimizes waste and extends product end of life by renting photography equipment until it becomes older, when it is sold at a discount. To add to the environmental benefits of this business model, BorrowLenses re-uses the cardboard shipping boxes and filler which significantly reduces packaging waste.
Shutterfly recognizes the impacts tied to increased Greenhouse Gas emissions and has taken on the responsibility of tracking and reducing these emissions. In 2023, Shutterfly will complete a baseline for Scope 3, or value chain emissions, so that when we set renewed targets we're addressing our entire footprint.
All sites encourage emissions reductions by randomly selecting employees who work from home, carpooling, biking or taking public transit to receive prizes quarterly.
We donate obsolete inventory or material review to national nonprofits. In 2022 alone, we donated 21 tons - or 42,000 pounds - of material.
We currently have two national partners, Habitat for Humanity and Kids in Need Foundation, and work with a number of smaller local non-profit organizations to repurpose this material.
