DENVER, Colorado, June 2, 2020— In support of their mission to provide members with business relationships, expertise and education that ensure the strength and profitability in the graphics, print and digital communications industries, the Graphic Arts Association (GAA) is partnering with PrintReleaf to provide members with a lower cost alternative on sustainable paper certification for commercial printers and their customers.
By partnering with PrintReleaf, GAA members have the option to measure their total paper consumption and convert that total into an equivalent number of trees which are then automatically and certifiably planted around the world at reforestation sites of their choice.
“The Graphic Arts Association found that the PrintReleaf initiative is a truly innovative, timely and user-friendly concept for both Printers and Print Buyers alike in achieving their goals of sustainability. PrintReleaf’s technology literally translates my Members’ conservation efforts into physical trees and replenished forests and that speaks volumes to the world about how GREEN PRINT really is as a medium of communication ….” said Melissa Jones, President of GAA.
“PrintReleaf has seen an increase in adoption from commercial printers and we’re excited to build on our momentum by extending our certification system to GAA and their membership. It’s a great way to benefit printers, their customers, and the environment” said Jordan Darragh, CEO of PrintReleaf.
