How Can Your Company Support the Great Environmental Story of Print and Paper?


Here’s how Two Sides works and why companies are joining us

by Phil Riebel, President, Two Sides North America

Two Sides is an educational and membership driven non-profit organization funded by over 1,000 companies across the graphic communications industry, from forest owners all the way to publishers.

Many of the leading organizations who rely on the print, paper and mail value chain have joined us, and several of them have seats on our Board of Directors and our Sustainability & Marketing Committee.

We operate on 5 continents and in over 15 countries globally, with North America being one of our most important regions.  We now have over 155 member companies in the U.S., Canada and Mexico and have been growing steadily every year since our launch in early 2012.

Without our members, we do not exist.

If you ask most of our members, they will tell you they have joined for the following reasons:

  1. Two Sides provides an independent and unified industry voice on the sustainability of print and paper.
  2. We successfully challenge and remove misleading and damaging claims about print and paper (go green, go paperless, save trees) being used by many organizations to promote electronic media over paper. Click here for more on our Anti-Greenwash Campaign.
  3. We provide our members top quality and factual messaging and marketing materials that they can co-brand or use in their marketing campaigns.  For example, see our Fact Sheets, Infographics, Myths and Facts Brochure, and much more at
  4. We provide a great networking opportunity with industry peers.
