Thoro Packaging and Good Hearted Leadership

It was such a wonderful experience to be interviewed by Ray Anderson on his internet radio program, “Catapult your Business with Good Hearted Leadership.” There are amazing stories of men and women GoodHeartedLdrs Radio Show-051214-2entrepreneurs making a difference in the world through embracing Ray’s principles and business philosophy. What an honor to be in their company.

During the interview, OC Talk Radio owner and producer Paul Roberts joined in with his questions too. His professionalism and years of experience made this a very memorable discussion. We share the same work ethic and business philosophy.

I would like to take this opportunity to give a BIG thank you to Ursula Mentjes of Sales Coach Now for making the initial connection between us.

We’re all surrounded by Good Hearted Leaders, probably people we know intimately, whose stories would be an encouragement to all of us.   If you know someone, including yourself, who has combined their vision to give back, with a successful entrepreneurial viewpoint, contact Ray and share your story.

Google is Changing Their Tune

In the beginning of January 2013, Google launched a campaign “Go Paperless in 2013”. Thoro Packaging is happy to report that Michael Makin, President and CEO of Printing Industries of America, brought the green-washing to light this past Tuesday. He sent anopen letter to Google’s CEO, challenging the campaign as “another example of a self-interested organization using an environmentally focused marketing campaign to promote its services while ignoring its own impact upon the environment.” Google cited many common misconceptions about print in their campaign, which they have since retracted thanks to the efforts of the PIA and other organizations. Click here to read more about this campaign.

“Private landowners plant about 4 million trees every day, which is 3-4 times more than they harvest…” according to the PIA as cited in the flipbook The Value of Print. As Michael Makin mentioned in his open letter to Google, “…today our country has 20 percent more trees than it did on the first Earth Day, which was held more than 40 years ago.”

The printing industry is among the […]

Paper Recovery Data

ppc_logo_low_rezAccording to the American Forest and Paper Association (AF&PA), 2011 paper recovery increased by 1.2 million tons to 66.8% compared to 63.5% in 2010.

Data shows that 30% of the paper and paperboard recovered in the United States went into producing corrugated boxes. 11% went to producing boxboard which includes gypsum wall board and folding cartons.

To remain a sustainability leader, the paper industry is setting a goal to further increase their paper recovery for recycle rate to exceed 70% by 2020.

The Best in the West

g7_logoThoro Packaging is going the extra mile. This week we will have a team of experts from Heidelberg here to verify that our presses are printing cleanly and consistently. The team consists of a Certified G7 Master and Press Optimization Expert. They will be here to verify that each press will match press to press and proof to press, to the G7 Standard.

Thoro Packaging is G7 Master Certified. This program identifies only those printing companies who have been trained to proof and print using the new G7 methodology. Thoro Packaging obtained their certification in 2010.
