A recent press release from EMA as one of the many Allied Organizations to join Two Sides over the past months.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (January 11, 2012) The Envelope Manufacturers Association (EMA) today announced that it has joined Two Sides, the fast-growing non-profit organization established to promote the responsible production, use and sustainability of print and paper.
Print and paper will continue to be important to the U.S. economy, to the millions of people who depend on the mailing industry for jobs and to those who simply enjoy the experience of ink on paper, says EMA President and CEO Maynard H. Benjamin. EMA joined Two Sides to help us expand our own efforts to educate people on the many environmental, social and economic benefits of print and paper and to dispel myths about the mediums true sustainability.
Print and paper have a great environmental story to tell, and Two Sides is committed to spreading the word as our U.S. effort continues to grow, says Two Sides President Phil Riebel. Made from one of the earths few truly renewable resources trees from responsibly managed forests print and paper is the most recycled commodity in the world. The demand for responsibly grown wood fiber to make print and paper products provides a long-term financial incentive for private landowner to manage their lands sustainably instead of selling them for development, he adds. And in the United States, the paper and forest products industry contributes hundreds of thousands of jobs to the print and paper supply chain.
