Chief operating officer Eric Boo explained: "Purchased paper has to come from a controlled forest where, if one tree is cut, another has to be planted. There is a chain of custody, right from the paper mill all the way to paper merchants, printers... and it all has to be accounted for."
"Mohawk Fine Papers is the 'Tiffany' of paper, plain and simple," said Danny Seo, founder and editor-in-chief, Naturally. "The luxurious paper stock we are using takes this magazine from regular flimsy newsstand fare to archival quality. The images look like fine art, and the weight and feel make you want to savor every page."

"Though we don't always see eye to eye on every issue, IRMA has developed a draft set of leading edge practices and a new definition of more responsible mining."
"That project was very ambitious with its environmental credentials and nobody had ever done anything like this before in New Zealand" Gudsell said
