"NPES is pleased to join Two Sides in its efforts to promote the responsible production and use of print and paper and to dispel the many myths about the environmental impacts of the medium," says NPES President Ralph Nappi. "There's a growing need within the graphic communications industry to address unsubstantiated claims about the environmental impacts of print and paper. Through our partnership with Two Sides, NPES's more than 400 member companies can now speak with one voice to counter the ‘go paperless, save trees' mantra and defend the millions of U.S. jobs that depend on responsibly produced paper."
"It's clear that print and paper will continue to be an important part of American life, so it's vital that we continue to educate people about the renewable nature, recyclability and other sustainability benefits of ink on paper," says Two Sides President Phil Riebel . "We're excited that NPES and its member companies are supporting our efforts to do so, and we couldn't be more pleased to have NPES President Ralph Nappi sitting on the Two Sides U.S. Board of Directors."
