Please check out my first Solve for X Moonshot and help me start the global printing revolution!

 Thank you for liking and sharing this moonshot!

The Print the Change Campaign will  start a printing revolution!
Right now the printing industry is not very ECO friendly! To say it in very nice words!
Its at the 4th place of most devestating activities on this planet!

The Environmental Impact

Unfortunately, the papermaking and th eprinting process is not a clean one. According to the U.S. Toxic Release Inventory report published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pulp and paper mills are among the worst polluters to air, water and land of any industry in the country. The Worldwatch Institute offers similar statistics for the rest of the world. Each year millions of pounds of highly toxic chemicals such as toluene, methanol, chlorine dioxide, hydrochloric acid and formaldehyde are released into the air and water from papermaking plants around the world.
World consumption of paper has grown 400 percent in the last 40 years. Now nearly 4 billion trees or 35 percent of the total trees cut around the world are used in paper industries on every continent. We should stop using TOXIC chemicals even in Children Books!

This is the vision for the GREEN MEDIA CAMPUS where we would teach printing companies from all over the world how to produce in the most eco friendly way! But we need strong partners to build this campus!  Global thought leaders on Sustainability! Companies like IBM or Google who realy care about building a sustainable future!And how can help with their knowledge and technology to build a smarter planet!

The time is now for us to go beyond simply being “less bad”and to lead the world in the invention and innovation of “more GOOD” with Cradle to Cradle products and a prosperous Cradle to Cradle economy! Together, we will inspire and transform the world! 

This Photo shows you that Arnold is not just a supporter of the Cradle to Cradle Economy but that he is also practicing what he preaches! His VIENNA R 20 Conference Folder has been printed in the most ECO friendly way... thats how Nature would print!
