This post is about the eco-papers for the programmes at the Tour Events.
For the US, Nicole Rycroft of www.canopyplanet.org tells us:
These printers all stock the Cascades ENVIRO 100 paper (100% post-consumer recycled, processed chlorine free paper produced by Cascades). I’m sure these printers will be using vegetable based inks.
Boston – Kirkwood Printing and DS Graphics
NY Metro – Ramsey Press and DG3
Wash DC – Svec Conway and Harris Litho
Chicago – CL Graphics and Hagg Press
On the west coast, I’d suggest using one of New Leaf Papers – perhaps the EVEREST (100% post-consumer recycled, processed chlorine free) Printers that stock them and have good environmental practices include…

Here is a list of printers stocking the paper (ENVIRO 100, produced by Casades) we’re recommending for Margaret’s tour materials. Just so you have the technical specs on the paper – it’s 100% post-consumer recycled, processed chlorine free paper. It’s carries the lightest impact on biodiversity and our climate of papers on the market.
Ottawa: Plantagenet Printing or Cielo Printing
Kingston: Digi Graphics
Toronto : Bown of Canada, CJ Graphics, Webcom, Warren’s Waterless, Die and Duhram or St-Joseph Printing
Sudbury : Journal Graphics
Vancouver: Hemlock Printing
I believe all of these printers use vegetable based inks. Webcom, St Joseph and Hemlock have environmental paper policies with Canopy. There doesn’t seem to be a printer stocking the ENVIRO 100 as a house stock in Calgary. If it is the case that no Calgary printers stock it as part of the regular inventory, they can easily source it. Every printer in Canada can access it, so you just need to request it.
From the UK, Penelope Beech of http://www.bloomsbury.com writes:
Just to confirm that we are printing the programmes for each venue now. Our printer has confirmed the following about their paper stock and general ethical processes.
Programmes will be printed on stock that is:
· 100% recycled· 100% post-consumer reclaimed material· FSC certified· Bleached using an Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) process· Fully recyclable and biodegradable· Produced at a mill that holds the ISO14001 Environmental certification (the printing works also holds this certification · NAPM approved recycled product
Thanks to all who did this research!
