Canadian magazines and printers receive Ancient Forest Friendly awards

Several Canadian magazines have won 2012 Ancient Forest Friendly awards, indicating their contribution to the protection of old-growth forests, climate and species by their on-the-ground conservation initiatives. 

Ancient Forest Friendly™ Gold is awarded to Alternatives Journal, Now Magazine, Quill & Quire, and Watershed Sentinel.

TC Media also receives a "Conservation Supporter Award" for its continued progress and significant increase in the use of eco-papers between 2011 and 2012. 

"Best in Class" awards went to TC Transcontinental Printing  (printers over 250,000 tonnes)  and St. Joseph Media and Garden Making magazine (consumer magazines), EarthColor (printers over 25,000 tonnes), Hemlock Printers (over 2,500 tonnes)  and Ecoprint (under 2,500 tonnes). 
The awards are organized by conservation campaigner Canopy and were to be presented Thursday at a reception. 
“It’s exciting to see the change this year’s Ancient Forest Friendly Award winners are spearheading in their industries,” says Canopy’s Campaign Director Amanda Carr. “These companies are showing their competitors, customers, and advertisers what real sustainability and environmental leadership look like.”
