Website and ads feature sustainability facts about print and paper products related to forestry, recycling and renewable energy use in the U.S. and Canada

Two Sides North America has just announced the launch of Love Paper, a new campaign designed to raise consumer awareness of the unique and inherently sustainable characteristics of print, paper and paper-based packaging. The centerpiece of the campaign is a consumer-friendly website, lovepaperna.org, where the click of a mouse reveals surprising facts about how print and paper products contribute to a sustainable future for us all.

“As consumers become increasingly concerned about the environmental impacts of the publications they read, the products they buy and the packaging those products come in, they need factual, science-based information to make informed purchasing decisions,” says Two Sides North America President Phil Riebel. “But all too often, they have little more than unsubstantiated marketing claims like ‘go green, go paperless’ or ‘going paperless saves trees’ to guide them. We created the Love Paper campaign to make it easy for anyone to get verifiable facts about the sustainability of print and paper products from a wide variety of trusted sources.”

 Publisher support

A key element of the Love Paper campaign is a series of print ads that promote the sustainability of print and paper. The ads, which focus on the sustainable forestry, recycling and renewable energy advantages of paper, are available to newspaper and magazine publishers free of charge. Editor & Publisher (E&P) magazine, the authoritative journal covering all aspects of the newspaper industry, is among the ad campaign’s most enthusiastic supporters.

“The newspaper industry and our suppliers are very focused on environmental sustainability, so supporting the Love Paper campaign is a natural fit for us,” says E&P Publisher Mike Blinder. “We especially like the ‘Paper Revolution’ ad on recycling because newspaper recycling is such a big part of the American recycling success story. Nearly 70% of old newspapers are recycled into new newsprint, boxboard and other products. The Love Paper ads help us share this great story with our readers.”

The full color ads are available in full page, half page (horizontal and vertical) and quarter page sizes.  Publishers interested in running the ads can go to the “For Publishers” page on the www.lovepaperna.org website or email Two Sides North America at  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Consumers Underestimate the Sustainability of Print and Paper Products

By their very nature, print and paper products are an important part of a circular economy where resources are used as productively and efficiently as possible. They are made with renewable raw materials, are recyclable and in North America are manufactured using mostly renewable, carbon-neutral energy, making them an environmentally sound choice for reading materials, communications and packaging solutions. Yet many North American consumers significantly underestimate how sustainable print and paper products truly are.

For example, a 2019 survey commissioned by Two Sides found that 58% of consumers believe U.S. forests are shrinking. In fact, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization estimates these forests, which supply the fresh wood fiber used by the U.S. pulp and paper industry, grew by a net area equivalent to more than 1,600 NFL football fields per day between 1990 and 2015. In Canada, only 21% of consumers think the recycling rate for paper and paper-based packaging exceeds 60%. In reality, the Canadian recycling rate is among the highest in the world at 70% according to the Forest Products Association of Canada.

“Our surveys also show that 68% of U.S. consumers believe print is the most enjoyable way to read books and 65% prefer reading printed magazines, with Canadian consumer preferences closely matching those of Americans,” Riebel says.  “On the packaging side, our data also show that more than half of U.S. consumers surveyed are actively taking steps to reduce their use of plastic packaging as evidence of harm caused by plastic litter in the oceans continues to grow.  The Love Paper campaign provides credible, fact-based information on why print and paper products are an environmentally responsible choice.”

The ZELLCHEMING Association is pleased to announce the return to a proven and popular location, the RheinMain CongressCenter (RMCC) Wiesbaden, at the same time as the date for the Expo and the Annual General Meeting that will take 9 to 10 June 2021. The event planned for June 2020 in the Frankfurt exhibition halls had been cancelled because of the corona pandemic.

The ZELLCHEMING association is thus continuing its successful events in the past: From 2003 to 2013, the Expo and General Meeting in the Rhein-Main-Hallen had already been organized by the association itself. In 2014, the association moved to Frankfurt am Main, as the long-standing location was torn down and rebuilt. In this context, a close cooperation with the organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt started.

From the beginning of July, ZELLCHEMING will again take over the management of the event. This includes the areas of organization, visitor support as well as communication and marketing. At the same time, the good cooperation with Mesago will continue: The trade fair company will remain responsible for exhibitor acquisition and services.

Petra Hanke, Managing Director of the ZELLCHEMING Association, explains: "From our point of view, we have come full circle here: Although the RMCC was rebuilt exactly at the old location, it is a highly modern and absolutely up-to-date congress Center. The ZELLCHEMING Association has also set itself the goal of working on current technical challenges facing the paper and pulp industry, while at the same time cultivating our roots and the tradition resulting from our more than 115-year history!

„We are using the break caused by the Corona pandemic this year for the reorientation of our concept, and against this background it makes sense that we will again have a direct influence on the content of the trade fair. But we also see it as a very positive signal that we can continue our partnership with Mesago“, she goes on.

"We look forward to being part of the ZELLCHEMING family in the future and to accompanying the traditionally rich paper industry with new and innovative topics to their new exhibition location. With our long-established network and our many years of expertise as a trade fair organizer, it is an honor for us to continue supporting the Expo." said Sabrina Zapf, Deputy Vice President of Mesago GmbH, responsible for the ZELLCHEMING-Expo.

WEPA Giershagen is steadily operating its Toscotec-supplied AHEAD-2.0S tissue line (PM19) at the speed of 2,200 mpm. PM19 came online in October 2015 and after a machine speed-up, reached the constant speed of 2,200 mpm. Based on this result, WEPA sets a new world record in the tissue industry for machine speed in continuous running conditions.

The AHEAD-2.0S line is dedicated to the production of high quality tissue from 15 to 16.5 gsm basis weight. WEPA maximized its efficiency and achieved top performance in terms of production capacity with low energy consumption. PM19 production fulfils the quality parameters of WEPA’s super-soft toilet paper.

2020 06 05 103959

Frank-Peter Folcz, Plant Manager WEPA Giershagen, said: “Concerning the layout of the machine, we decided for a double press with 2x 120 kN/m line load. This was a new way for us, but it was exactly the right way. In order to produce paper in this speed range in a stable manner and with the highest performance, you do not only need a good machine - motivated and very well-trained staff is just as important. This combination is key to success”.

Riccardo Gennai, Toscotec Sales Manager, said, “We congratulate WEPA on the incredible job they did on this Toscotec machine. Our longstanding partnership has led to many achievements, and taking PM19 to the constant speed of 2,200 mpm is certainly a great one. This is what we work for everyday at Toscotec: supporting our customers’ success with the best technology and services. It is a satisfaction for us to see that PM19 still has untapped drying capacity, given the considerable margin both in terms of steam pressure and hood temperature.”

From 2006, Toscotec supplied the WEPA Group with 5 complete tissue lines - three of which on a full turnkey basis - and eight rebuild projects in paper mills in Germany, France, Italy and Poland.
