CellMark Joins Two Sides


CHICAGO (March 21, 2017) – CellMark Paper has joined Two Sides North America, the non-profit organization that promotes and encourages the responsible production, use, and sustainability of print and paper.

“Two Sides is very proud to welcome CellMark Paper, a leading global paper distributor, to our growing network of member companies. CellMark is an excellent ‘corporate citizen,’ and has active sustainability and social responsibility programs,” said Two Sides North America President, Phil Riebel.  “Additionally, CellMark sponsors a world-class non-profit organization.  Its PaperSeed Foundation is dedicated to strengthening educational opportunities for children and young people in underserved and resource-lacking communities around the world. The Two Sides message about the social and environmental features of print and paper is a great fit.”

McKee, Executive Vice President at CellMark Paper, said the partnership will help both organizations’ efforts to bolster paper markets while supporting sustainable forest management globally.  “For more than 30 years, CellMark has been committed to sustainability, to enhancing the communities in which we work and live, and to fostering broad-based use of paper, which remains a valuable communications tool,” McKee said.
