CHICAGO (August 27, 2018)– The National Group has joined Two Sides North America, the non-profit organization that promotes and encourages the responsible production, use, and sustainability of print and paper.
“We welcome The National Group to our Two Sides network of companies. They join a group of over 155 organizations in the U.S. and Canada that are dedicated to promoting the sustainability of print and paper, including over 35 commercial printers which have been very supportive of Two Sides. We look forward to working with The National Group to further spread the positive sustainability story of print on paper,” said Two Sides North America President, Phil Riebel.
“We are excited to be joining Two Sides and partnering with others in our industry to share the positive story of print on paper. It has been concerning over the last several years to see print somewhat demonized as not being environmentally friendly. As a society we underestimate the impact of e-waste on our environment and health. As a Forest Stewardship Council certified printer since 2012 we are invested in doing the right thing. Some do not realize that every time a person chooses print it creates a demand for products, giving forest land owners a way to earn a living from the forest, instead of cutting them down for real estate development or other deforested uses. Print is driving the forest products industry to plant 1.7 billion trees per year. Just think of the total carbon storage that this provides. Digital media does not have this capacity,” said Julia Farrell, Vice President, The National Group.
