The OSA Project
In 2009, Neenah undertook an initiative to help protect migrating Wisconsin birds wintering in Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula. By partnering with the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, we are helping reforest this peninsula, one of the world’s most biologically diverse regions. This forest provides a critical habitat for much of Costa Rica’s wildlife, as well as a wintering region to many of Wisconsin’s birds.
The OSA Project
Two Sides U.S.
Neenah Paper has signed on as one of the inaugural supporters of Two Sides U.S., the non-profit organization that works to promote the responsible production, use and sustainability of print. One of several leading companies to pledge support for Two Sides, Neenah is part of a growing cadre of leaders in media, publishing, paper distribution, and manufacturing that have come together to share the message that paper is an environmentally friendly communications choice.
“Print media is inherently sustainable and its environmental footprint is continually improving due to the initiatives that responsible paper mills are undertaking,” adds Gregg Aiken, Mill Manager for Neenah’s Whiting, Wis., plant, and a member of Two Sides’ Sustainability Committee. “We believe it’s our responsibility as a company to drive sustainable changes within our business, while influencing our customers by sharing the sustainability message. Two Sides provides an effective platform to make it happen.”
Making the right environmental paper choice can be confusing but it doesn't have to be. We put together a list of the questions our customers frequently asked about green papers and processes. Feel good making the responsible and knowledgeable paper choice every time.
