Environmental Impact - Troi Mailing

Troi Mailing Services appreciates our connection to environmental responsibility, as a provider of print and direct mail solutions. Many consumers are familiar with the classic “save the trees” buzz phrase, which is an important narrative indeed. Fortunately, the printing and mailing industries continue to be highly proactive.

Trees are a renewable resource. Paper producers worldwide have sustained this resource for generations, and will continue to make environmentally conscious manufacturing decisions. Despite some popular myths, more trees are grown than harvested in North America. Let’s resolve some of these myths by exploring factual takeaways about paper production.

According to Two Sides North America—a non-profit organization, and part of the Two Sides global network:

  • The Canadian forest space of 857 million acres has measurable stability—for the past 25 years and moving forward.
  • Annually, North American forests grow substantially more wood than we harvest. In 2017, Canada harvested more than 5.5 billion ft3 of timber, much lower than the sustainable wood supply level—7.8 billion ft3.
  • Harvesting happens on 0.2% of Canadian forest land annually, while 4.5% of forest land is disturbed by insects, and 0.7% disrupted by fire.
  • Sustainable certifications and government regulations mandate forest regeneration so harvested spaces continue to produce trees for the foreseeable future.

Our Renewable Future helps answer the common FAQ: Does using paper products kill trees?

When consumers demand fiber-based packaging, pulp, and paper, this creates a need for plentiful, renewable wood fiber. The need encourages paper manufacturing companies to maintain abundant, healthy forests—and industry standards such as FSC, PEFC, and Sustainable Forestry Initiative. This supply-demand relationship incentivizes landowners to grow and keep their forested land.

Since trees are a renewable resource, many climate specialists conclude that carefully managed forests is one of the most cost-effective ways to handle climate change.

We now understand that “go paperless” is not synonymous with supreme environmental responsibility. When companies switch to digital communications exclusively, there is a cost to storing and processing electronic information. This is an environmental cost.

In 2014, the Natural Resources Defense Council stated that data centers are one of the biggest and most rapidly increasing electricity consumers. Data centers can consume well over 100 billion kilowatt-hours every year—enough electricity to power major cities multiple times.

Direct mail continues to be a strong resource, in many ways. Let Troi guide you in the right direction. Our expert team can recommend and source environmentally friendly paper stocks, so your audience recognizes a commitment to sustainability.

Environmental impact is an important ongoing role for all global citizens. Troi Mailing Services is here to help your business succeed, responsibly.
