Environmental Paper Network’s RePaper Project

Announces New Sponsorship Program

Limited Brands Foundation and Boise, Inc Help Build Paper Recycling Partnerships

February 16, 2011 – The RePaper Project announced today that Limited Brands Foundation and Boise, Inc are providing financial support for the RePaper Project’s mission to increase waste paper recovery for recycling in North America.

Investments by Limited Brands Foundation and Boise are supporting a new, more sustainable marketplace of paper choices and will greatly enhance the RePaper Project’s work to develop strategic and diverse partnerships that will increase awareness and education around the needs of paper recycling. “We created our new sponsorship program in the fall of 2010 to help diversify and expand our funding sources,” stated Pam Blackledge, coordinator of the RePaper Project. “Boise and Limited are two companies that we are extremely pleased to have supporting our mission. I look forward to the months ahead building collaborative recycling partnerships through their generous support.”

The RePaper Project is a program of the Environmental Paper Network (EPN) with a mission to advance paper manufacturing that maximizes recycled content and environmentally preferred fibre sources. The Project’s role is to catalyze a collaborative movement that will increase and improve waste paper recovery, allowing a more sustainable resource to be used for paper manufacturing.

Five representatives from EPN member organisations inform the RePaper Project: Canopy, Conservatree, Green America, Green Press Initiative, and National Wildlife Federation.
