Domtar Designer Corner presents Eco-Smart

So, for a while now, I've become fascinated with how different paper companies have been handling the sustainability issue. Sappi Fine Paper is now wearing its FSC Certification loud and proud, and Mohawk (my favorite thus far, and the line I spec most often) actually trains a selected group of its sales staff as specialists in eco-friendly print production. Love them!

A couple of days ago, I finally took notice of Domtar EarthChoice, a line of eco-responsible papers from Domtar. After some poking around on the Domtar site (and getting some samples, including a really cool album cover poster that they just wanted me to have, apparently), I noticed something exciting: The Domtar Designer Corner, which has all sorts of information goodies for designers - from creative tips and tips on using paper effectively to (my favorite) a complete section called Eco-Smart, which has all sorts of green news and tips for the eco-friendly designer in all of us. My favorite eco-news: Victoria's Secret is making steps towards greening their catalogs! Hey - it's small - but progress is always good.

I can't wait to spend some time with this site.
