Friends Of Print and Paper

Now I know this sounds like a "self help" group that I might have founded, but this is serious, honest!

Earlier this week I was sent a link to a site of a (realtively) new organisation called Friends of Print and Paper (or FOPAP for short).
This site appears to have been set up by individuals who are fed up with some of the claims made in and by the media about the environmental harm that paper does to the environment and the rush to both stop using or recycling paper. They have some interesting scientific information about the way in which paper works as a carbon "sink".

Now you might think that this is paper industry "propaganda" but I'm fairly sure it's not - it seems to be run by individuals and isn't backed by industry bodies or any of the pulp and paper companies, so maybe, just maybe, there's something in it.

Now, I know there'll be a lot of criticism about the logo and the site design, but get past that and have a read...
(and if you have any comments, let me know)
