Sustainability is a hot topic in today’s world, and paper is usually seen as oneof the main factors surrounding the issue of sustainability. We are constantlytold to use less paper, recycle, go online, and save the trees. Rarely is the flipside of sustainability discussed, because we just presume that we must followthe rules of sustainability to help the environment.

Designers are seen to be a catalyst in saving the planet, and are expected tochange their design style, and limit their creativity, in an attempt to besustainable. However, in many cases, these attempts are not nearly aseffective as they are claimed to be.

On top of that, the rise in digital communications has changed the world’srelationship with paper. Print is widely seen to be dead, or dying. However,print is an amazing communicator, and has values that computers and otherelectronic devices will never be able to compete with.
