Two sides publishes pro-print fact sheets

Two Sides, an organization that promotes the sustainability and attractiveness of print and paper, has published a series of 11 fact sheets to address a wide array of environmental and social issues. These cover the most common areas of misunderstanding, ranging from the real environmental impact of electronic communication, to the sustainability of paper-based printed products, as well as tackling the important role that print and paper plays in literacy and learning.

Martyn Eustace, Managing Director of Two Sides, says that the print and paper industries have tidied up their environmental act, adding: “During the last 20 years forests in Europe have grown by 42 million acres – an area twice the size of Portugal – and the European paper recycling rate is at an all-time-high of 72%.”

The full series of fact sheets are available to download free of charge at http://twosides.info/Fact-Sheets. Members of ‘Two Sides’ can also personalise the fact sheets; a powerful addition to their own sustainability materials. A copy of the ‘Two Sides Myths and facts booklet’ can also be requested at enquiries@twosides.info.

Eustace says: “Our role is to educate consumers and businesses that print and paper is a remarkable and sustainable means of communication. It is also important not to forget that alternative digital communications have environmental impacts too.”

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
