Printers, publishers, activists win green awards
Several companies and projects familiar to the publishing industry came out on top at the Environmental Printing Awards held in Toronto last week.

The partners in last year’s “Wheat Sheet” project that saw an issue of Canadian Geographic printed on paper made partially from waste wheat-straw fibre received several awards.

The magazine’s printer, Dollco Printing in Ottawa, received the gold award for Most Progressive Environmental Printing project, web offset category. Another partner in the project, Markets Initiative executive director Nicole Rycroft, won the Environnmental Innovator award for her role as the brainchild behind the issue.

Town Media, a magazine publisher in Hamilton, Ont., owned by the Torstar group Quebecor Media, won a gold award for Most Environmentally Progressive Print Consumer in Canada for its paper supply policy.

Among the other winners were printers St. Joseph Communications, Colour Innovations, C.J. Graphics, Hemlock Printers and Metropolitan Fine Printers. Paper maker Cascades Fine Paper and merchant Unisource also took away honours.

The awards are produced by trade publication PrintAction and the full  list of winners can be seen here.
