A national day of learning

Saturday marks 47 years since the first environmentally focused teach-in known as Earth Day was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970. The founding of Earth Day marks a pivotal point in our environmental history. Until 1970 there was no government legislation regulating pollution. It was perfectly legal to dump toxic waste into our rivers and atmosphere. The creation of a national day of learning that focused on environmental education pushed the debate of pollution regulation to the forefront. The result was the Clean Air Act of 1970 and the formation of the Environmental Protection Agency also known as the E.P.A.

Thanks to an increased demand for planet-friendly products there is now a plethora of sustainable print materials available at more affordable prices than ever before. Paper is the most recycled material with over 65% of its products being recovered for recycling every year. Wide format materials now include paper-based rigid substrates and outdoor grade materials that are recyclable and/or biodegradable.

Paper production is one of the most sustainable manufacturing models in the United States. Not only does paper come from a renewable source, most paper production facilities pursue renewable energy in manufacturing and utilize every last bit of the raw materials being processed.
