Two Sides North America Press Release
CHICAGO, IL (January 6, 2015) – The Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) recently joined Two Sides North America, the non-profit organization that promotes and encourages the responsible production, use and sustainability of print and paper.
Now in its 85th year, PPC (www.paperbox.org) is the leading industry association serving suppliers and converters of all forms of paperboard packaging. PPC works to grow, promote, and protect the paperboard packaging industry while providing its members with resources and tools to compete effectively and successfully in the marketplace.
“We are pleased to welcome PPC to our network. Paperboard and paper-based packaging can clearly benefit from our initiatives to educate people about the sustainability of paper-based products. We look forward to working with PPC to expand our reach into the important North American market,” stated Two Sides North America President Phil Riebel.
“There is a pervasive myth out there that going paperless is somehow the most environmentally sound option for consumers and companies, and this is simply unfounded,” said Ben Markens, President of the Paperboard Packaging Council. “By joining Two Sides, PPC aims to forge a rich and mutually beneficial relationship between our organizations that will help to bust misleading greenwashing initiatives and bolster the paperboard packaging industry.”
