Visiting EarthColor’s facility was a unique experience for the students of the Young Manufacturers Summer Academy (YMSA).
Recently, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) contacted EarthColor to participate in the Young Manufacturers Summer Academy (YMSA) program to explain sustainable manufacturing. The YMSA is a summer program that teaches students about manufacturing by visiting local companies and schools to attend workshops and participate in hands-on activities.

EarthColor is passionate about educating and creating awareness on sustainability practices so they agreed to participate in the YMSA program. They hosted 10 students from 7th to 10th grade in their facility on Monday, August 10th in Parsippany, New Jersey.
Robert Kashan, EarthColor’s CEO, met with the students and spoke about how the company transitioned its workflows and equipment to become a sustainable printer. EarthColor’s Chief Sustainability Officer David Podmayersky, defined sustainable manufacturing and what it means to integrate renewable programs within a business. He explained EarthColor’s environmentally friendly processes and the students toured the facility to see the manufacturing in action.
At the end of the tour, each student left with a copy of EarthColor’s current Sustainability Report.
