Mitsubishi MotorsUnder a 1997 agreement with the Rainforest Action Network (RAN), Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America (MMSA) agreed to conduct an unprecedented environmental review of all their business practices, and to track their environmental performance in manufacturing, distributing, and sales. In an effort to address corporate responsibility and the environment, the company agreed to eliminate non-renewable and hazardous materials from their production processes. Mitsubishi also pledged to end their use of old-growth forest products, to phase out the use of tree-based paper and packaging products in favor of alternative fibers, The company now uses Vanguard Recycled Plus™, 24# writing paper for its corporate letterhead.
"Saving the environment can lead to new business opportunities."
— Tachi Kiuchi, the former CEO of Mitsubishi
PatagoniaPatagonia has long been a pioneer in the garment industry. Recognizing that their business activity creates pollution, the company strives to minimize their impact on the environment by using processed chlorine-free post-consumer recycled paper, tree-free paper, and soy-based inks whenever possible for printing catalogs and other materials. To this end, Patagonia prints their hang tags on Vanguard Recycled Plus™, 80# cover stock.
"We realized that all of Patagonia's facilities should be involved in recycling and composting and have edible landscaping, low energy-use power, and insulation. We should use recycled paper everywhere, even in our catalogs, encourage ride sharing, eliminate paper cups, and so forth."
— Yvon Chouinard, Founder of Patagonia

Red Hot Chili PeppersMusicians have long been a mouthpiece for environmental sustainability, but in April 2002, the band insisted that their label, Warner Bros., use tree-free and recycled paper on their new release, By The Way. The CD features a 12 page CD insert printed on our Déjà Vu™ 100# Matte Text.
"If we could do it first in a way where we're not being wasteful and helping to recycle and preserve our precious resources, that's great and we're happy to do that; but also, we wanted to set some sort of standard to inspire other bands and help them to see that it's very easy and simple to do and your CD's can still look good and do well and that we don't need to waste trees."
— Flea, Bassist, Red Hot Chili Peppers
