First things first, paper is not bad for the environment. Growing up as a millennial led me and many others to believe that paper was dreadfully bad for the environment. Each time I had to painfully practice my cursive writing on hand-lined paper, I imagined an entire rainforest being cut down to support third grade teachers cruel classroom practices. Alas, this wasn’t so. Paper is truly one of the most sustainable resources in use today. Here are a few facts from our friends at FSSI:
- Paper is based on wood fibers, a natural and renewable resource that can be planted, grown, harvested, and replanted. In fact, each year, forests in the US and Canada grow significantly more wood than they harvest.
- In North America, paper is recycled more than any other commodity and the benefits include: extending the wood fiber supply; reducing greenhouse gas emissions by avoiding methane emissions (released when paper decomposes in landfills or is incinerated); contributing to carbon sequestration; reducing the energy needed for paper production; and saving landfill space.
- Most paper in the United States is made from sawmill residues and recovered paper. Only 36% of the US timber harvest is used each year in manufacturing paper and paperboard, and in Canada only 13%.
Interesting, right? One would think that in this day and age print media is dissipating. That is entirely incorrect. For years now, digital media has been all the rage. It is prophesied that while print media has maintained a strong presence, it will become more trendy to use print marketing in 2019. To quote Business Optimizer, “Entrepreneur John Hall predicts a return to print marketing in 2019. He argues it helps brands to cut through the noise of digital marketing and reach customers in a way which for some is entirely new. For those of us of a certain age, the notion of a print newsletter being a “new” way to reach our audiences might seem a little absurd, but Hall argues that “integrated campaigns and creative distribution tactics that focus on ways to engage audience members that their industry competitors might not be considering.”
