I thought Printech and Printreg readers might find this of interest. -Wayne Forwarded by Phil Kaplan/R5/USEPA/US on 01/16/200103:48 PM >Terry Grogan >12/27/2000 09:27 AM >Subject: Initiative for "Green" Magazines I wanted to call to your attention an effort launched by Coop America, Conservatree, and the Independent Press Association, to improve the environmental impact of magazines, e.g., by increasing use of post-consumer recycled fiber and moving to chlorine-free paper. The initiative is called the the PAPER (Printing Alternatives Promoting Environmental Responsibility) Project . It targets readers (asking them to notify publishers of their support for such changes) and the media (providing them info on environmental choices and practical tips on how to make the change, including an offer of direct technical assistance). They also issued EcoPaper Leadership Awards to 12 magazines, who were featured in Barnes and Nobles bookstores. For more info, check out their web site at: http://www.ecopaperaction.org/ (PS The main resource provided is a detailed listing of environmentally preferable papers compiled by Conservatree. I found no reference to EPA's CPG or EPP programs, RCRA, or EO 13101, or the information available through them. Perhaps someone should contact the initiative to make sure they are aware of these resources.)
