Boston Print Buyers Presents: Environmentally Sustainable Advertising and Print Production
Press release from the issuing company
August 20, 2007, Chestnut Hill, MA -- On Tuesday, September 25, Boston Print Buyers (a division of Print Buyers International, LLC) is hosting an educational dinner program on the vital topic of Environmentally Sustainable Advertising and Print Production. This special program is co-sponsored by Pictorial Offset Corporation of Carlstadt, NJ, and Cascades, based in Quebec. The program will take place from 6 to 8:30 pm at the Millennium Bostonian Hotel in Boston, MA.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, "…sustainability encompasses ideas…that inspire public and private organizations to become better stewards of the environment." On a personal level, we are well aware that going "green" makes a big difference in minimizing adverse effects on the environment.
But what about printing?
From reducing the size of corporate carbon footprints to managing operations to reduce global warming, the trend of environmentally responsible communications is on the upswing. However, many agencies and companies don't know how to get started.
Panel of Experts
At this dinner program, a specially selected panel of experts - key practitioners who will speak from agency, paper, print, and environmental group perspectives - will discuss how you can take meaningful steps to produce environmentally responsible communications and foster sustainability.
Panelists include Gary M. Pawlaczyk of Pictorial Offset, David Elovich of Cascades Fine Paper, and Liza Murphy of the Rainforest Alliance.
