CHICAGO (December 4, 2012) – Case Paper Company 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.
“As one of the largest privately held paper merchants and converters in the United States, Case Paper is pleased to join with Two Sides, not only in promoting the responsible production and use of print and paper, but also in dispelling common myths about the sustainability of this important medium,” says Simon Schaffer, Director of Specialty Papers and Board. “Two Sides’ focus on factual information from credible sources is an effective way to educate people about paper’s true environmental, social and economic benefits.”
“Print and paper have a great environmental story to tell, and Two Sides is pleased to have Case Paper join our growing U.S. effort to get the word out to as many people as possible,” says Two Sides President Phil Riebel. “Made from one of the earth’s few truly renewable resources – trees from responsibly managed forests – print and paper is the most recycled commodity in the world. Nearly 68 percent of paper produced in the United States is recovered for recycling. In addition, the demand for responsibly grown wood fiber to make print and paper products provides a long-term financial incentive for private landowners to manage their land sustainably instead of selling it for development,” he says. “And the print, paper and mailing supply chain supports millions of U.S. jobs.”
