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 ImpactUnfortunately, 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!
