Hello LJers!

I've friended several new people today to reconnect me to one of my favorite things about LiveJournal, the *people* themselves. I love the clever ways people use their LiveJournals. I love reading journal entries. I love how distinct and personal each LJ is, and I love the kinds of people it attracts!

I am looking forward to getting to know my new friends better.

Have a wonderful Friday! xoxoxoxo

Love & light,
Paradise

30 Companies Remove Claims of “Going Paperless” to Go Green

Two Sides North America recently announced that it has convinced more than 30 North American companies to remove claims of “going paperless to save trees” from their billing and communications.

Two Sides believes that these “anti-paper” claims are unnecessarily harmful to the paper, printing, and mail industries, and is challenging these companies for several reasons, including:


  • “Anti-paper” claims do not meet the guidelines for environmental marketing, according to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the Competition Bureau of Canada

  • “Going paperless” is harmful to the U.S. economy – a total of 8.4 million American jobs (that’s $1.3 trillion in sales revenue) depends on the U.S. mailing industry, including paper production, printing production, graphic design, and the handling and distribution of mail

  • Paper is a renewable resource – it is the most recycled commodity in the U.S., with recovery rates of 63% or higher

  • More trees are grown than harvested in North America – in the last 60 years, the total net U.S. forest area has increased by over 3%, and the net volume of trees on timberland has increased 58%

The environmental claims associated with “going paperless” have not been properly investigated or proven as fact. These claims perpetuate the belief that a paperless environment is greener without adequately exploring the negative effects of increased energy use, the impact of the chosen energy source, or the proper disposal of e-waste.

Consumer surveys have also unearthed a common frustration felt amongst 50% of American respondents, who don’t believe or feel mislead by claims that going paperless saves trees. In fact, over 80% of respondents felt that these companies chose to go paperless to save money rather than reduce their carbon footprint.

Until the environmental benefits of going paperless are adequately studied and proven in comparison to the carbon footprint of electronic media and communications, there is room for both in the world of business.

For more information, please read this article by Alison Moodie.

Update – December 12, 2014

Phil Riebel, President of Two Sides North America, explains why going paperless is not the way to save American forests.

“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That’s how it was conceived, really,” Rowling says in the interview. “For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”

“I know, I’m sorry,” she adds. “I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”

And what did the fictional Mrs. Weasley have to say about all this? She agrees!

“I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy,” Watson says in the interview.

“Harry and Hermione were a better match than Ron and Hermione,” Rowling confirms.

Okay,

Another update is necessary. I will be trying to do some requests people asked me to do on K-site. So I hope to update again later this week!

In the meantime I hope you'll enjoy these!

⚠️WARNING⚠️: Incoming Unpopular Opinion

I really did not get the magic of Sara Ellis. She was uptight with delusions of grandeur. She had that kind of negative Scorpio attitude where she behaved as though her traumas and losses were so much deeper than everyone else’s, even though we all have losses and many of us, far worse ones than she did. How she could be that morose making love with Neal in the penthouse of a historic mansion is BEYOND me. LOL, geez lady, lighten up.

P.S. And if she is going to wear dresses that are so tight that the audience can see her freckles through the material, she needs to stand up straight!  Posture matters when you dress like that.
