Mohawk Paper Mills Tapped to Provide Paper for Environmentally-Friendly DVD Packaging

Press release from the issuing company

[Cohoes, NY] – The environmental message behind Dale Djerassi and Bo Boudart’s film Oil on Ice is loud and clear – the environment is important, and both our business and consumer choices can honor and protect it. Oil on Ice, a documentary about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska and the controversy over drilling for oil there, is now available on DVD – and in eco-friendly packaging. The Oil on Ice DVD package, designed by Insync Media, is produced using Mohawk Options 100% PC White cover paper. Mohawk Paper Mills was selected to provide the paper for the Oil on Ice DVD package because it offered paper made with process-chlorine-free 100 percent post-consumer waste fiber and is manufactured using non-polluting, wind-generated energy from Fenner Wind Farm in upstate New York. A leader in environmental stewardship, Mohawk is the only mill in the U.S. to use non-polluting, wind energy to make paper. The paper is certified by Green Seal and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) under a program recognizing products made with high percentages of post-consumer reclaimed materials. Oil on Ice, a presentation of Sierra Club Productions, explores the issues of American consumption and links the choices we make today about America’s wild places to our energy future. “It is important to practice what we preach in the film,” said Djerassi. “We are proud to offer not only a film that informs the public about the energy debate and the importance of preserving our country’s treasured wild places, but also a packaging solution that is environmentally conscientious and responsible.”
