2nd March, 2011 by Greg Campbell
Working towards best greener practice can be a tricky process, so here’s your shortcut to Eco Paper in Australia and beyond with the REAP guide... http://www.srd.org.au/reap.htm independent research that’s referenced by many leading NGO’s, annually updated, plus written and researched by an AGDA founding year member /past NSW councillor.
These days you would expect every paper stock should have some green credo but now you can lift the game and your knowledge by selecting those papers with the greenest heritage available for Australia. This site shows you how plus links to paper calculators, global green paper sites, printing tips and more. Four major sections for Uncoated, Coated, Specialty and Office paper. No need to be daunted by the amount of data as you can simply see the stocks listed higher have the greener credentials.
Substantive, reliable information needs to be available to enable designers wishing to know more. We all want to make a positive difference and this site helps. If you find a stock you think should be given consideration, then drop me an email and supply all the details. The entire process is open to constructive input. (And Yes, the whole site may be redesigned one day too). Presented by the Society for Responsible Design, membership and supporters welcome.
