WHAT IS GREENWASHING?
Greenwashing is the attempt by corporations and institutions to persuade people that using paper is harmful to the environment. In fact, paper production and use is a highly sustainable practice. Wood fibers can be grown, sourced and reused in a responsible way. Maximizing the use of recycled fibers and sourcing virgin fiber from credibly certified natural forests and plantations can reduce paper’s ecological footprint. Replacing paper with electronic communication to save the environment is a specious argument because it is now well established that our laptops, phones, and other digital devices place a heavy toll on the environment through energy use and the production of greenhouse gases.
UVAPrint recently joined forces with Two Sides North America, a global initiative by companies from the Graphic Communications Industry to promote the sustainability of this industry and to dispel common environmental misconceptions by providing users with verifiable information on why print and paper is an attractive, practical and sustainable communications medium.
