Hitting the Mark with Recycled Paper
This year during Paper Week in Chicago—now called Paper 2011—I escaped from the hotel and the meetings for a field trip. I traveled to the village of Alsip, about 15 miles south of Chicago. In Alsip, you feel like you’re still in the city.
I was invited to visit the FutureMark paper mill, which was unlike many others I’ve visited near the forests of Louisiana or Wisconsin or Quebec. This one is in an urban forest, and makes high-quality recycled paper.
