Metaforce Launches Website
Metafore, along with a unique collaboration of stakeholders across the paper supply chain, has created a comprehensive online resource that will enable companies and customers to make more informed environmental decisions about the paper products they purchase, use and sell.
The Paper Life Cycle details critical environmental issues from the forest through paper manufacturing process, end-use and recovery in a science-based and interactive format.
The website was developed to inform purchasing decisions by providing environmental information to paper buyers and sellers.
"We found there was a need in the marketplace for information about the many environmental considerations across the life cycle of paper," said Tom Pollock, Senior Program Manager of Metafore, a program of the nonprofit sustainability institute GreenBlue. "This is an online resource for businesses to make informed purchasing decisions that integrate environmental and economic performance."
