European Forests are growing by over 1,500 football pitches every day!

Submitted by: Greg Selfe 21/03/2016

Between 2005 and 2015, European forests grew by 44,000km2  - that’s an area bigger than Switzerland and amounts to over 1,500 football pitches of forest growth every day!

Today is the International Day of Forests, so what a fantastic day to celebrate these latest figures for European forest growth

Paper is a uniquely renewable and sustainable product. The main raw materials, trees, are grown and harvested in a carefully controlled and sustainable way. 

There are many great reasons to love paper. The fact that responsible and sustainable forestry is helping our forests grow, is just one of those reasons. 

The new Love Paper advert

We want to tell the world about all of these great reasons to love paper. Over the coming weeks and months, you will start to see our latest campaign appearing in UK newspapers, magazines and online. 

These new adverts will be based on our forthcoming, newly designed, Myths and Facts booklet. Due to be released in April, version 9 of our popular booklet has all new facts and figures, a new front cover and new illustrations. Like its predecessor, the new Myths and Facts booklet will also be personalisable by our members, creating a powerful tool to promote print and paper's great environmental story to staff and clients. 

We are really excited about all the new Two Sides materials on their way, if you want to find out how you can help spread the message, whether it's co-branding the booklet or publishing the adverts, please get in touch with us.
