Furthering Sustainable Business Practices With Two Sides
The print and paper advocacy group, Two Sides, are excited to announce its newest member, a print partner for thousands of marketing, creative and print professionals, Tradeprint.
“We understand what the customer needs from us, and we’ll do everything it takes to deliver. We know their reputation is on the line with each and every order, that’s why we produce only the highest quality print,” says Charlene Joss, Managing Director at Tradeprint.
Charlene continues, “It’s not just the high quality of print we deliver to our customers, but also the benefit of knowing that we regularly evaluate ways to reduce the impact of our operations and products on the environment. By joining with Two Sides, we will further promote the sustainable qualities of our company and an industry that has a great sustainable record.”
Committed to supporting the wider industry, Charlene has supported Anthony Rowell, Sales and Customers Success Director at Tradeprint, in taking a leading role with the BPIF alongside his responsibilities for Tradeprint. Now Chair of the BPIF Environmental Forum, Anthony wants to lead the way in providing a road map to encourage print businesses to make informed choices that mitigate environmental impacts and improve profits. Anthony states, “I want us to lead in abolishing greenwash and provide open, transparent communication so we can make the best decisions based on scientific fact, not fiction.”
“There are many environmental myths that surround the print and paper industry. Our latest research found that 59% of UK consumers believe European forests are shrinking. In reality, between 2005 and 2020, European forests grew by an impressive 58,390km2, which equates to an area larger than Switzerland. Furthermore, most UK consumers vastly underestimate the paper recycling rate. Only 17% believe it exceeds 60%, in fact, it’s 72%.” says Jonathan Tame, Managing Director of Two Sides UK.
“Misconceptions around the print and paper industry like this means that the work we do at Two Sides is more important than ever. Welcoming new members on board is always a pleasure, and it means we are able to share the environmental merits of print and paper with a much wider audience. We look forward to working with the Tradeprint.”
By joining Two Sides, Tradeprint has access to a large library of co-brandable communications tools, consumer research, industry-leading information, sustainability advice, and events.
