AIP Victoria August technical dinner

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) Victorian Branch, in conjunction with APPITA, will be holding a technical dinner on Wednesday the 3rd of August at the Box Hill Golf Club with speakers from 10 Thousand Trees and Network Marketing.

Ian Krawitz, Founder of 10 Thousand Trees, will provide an overview of the use of paper and paper products in Australia, go through the cycle of paper and how we can help make it sustainable. He will also explain how the 10 Thousand Trees program works and how your company can benefit.

10 Thousand Trees is an initiative to help make paper a sustainable resource and reduce the need for deforestation in the long term. They plant trees as a crop here in Australia and supply that back into the paper industry. Every 12 years they harvest the trees and all proceeds go into planting and managing more trees. Projections show that this effectively doubles the number of trees every cycle and 10 trees planted today would give you 10,000 trees in 120 years and a great positive legacy.

John Brannan, Sales Manager - Printing Applications, Network Marketing, will be presenting on Stone-Paper as an alternative to paper and synthetic plastic printing substrates as it has a lower environmental impact and energy footprint. Stone-Paper is made from calcium carbonate is 100% tree free, tear resistant, creates no water pollution and is easy to process and print.
