Domtar Releases New Wave of "Paper Because" Campaign
(PRESS RELEASE) Building on its award-winning "Paper Because" campaign, Domtar Corporation today released a new series of videos promoting the important role paper plays in our lives.
The videos will debut on PaperBecause.com, Domtar.com, YouTube and social media sites - relying on satire to highlight how using paper responsibly makes business sense and how it's also an environmentally sound choice. The 30-second spots take a humorous look at office settings where the pressures to go paperless are taken to ridiculous lengths. In early 2012, new print ads will be added to the campaign in trade and consumer media, while the videos and banner ads will appear on a variety of news websites.
"Paper Because has enabled Domtar to communicate the importance of paper to business and opinion leaders," said Lewis Fix, Vice-President of Sustainable Business and Brand Management at Domtar. "Domtar has long been a leader in sustainable paper production. The Paper Because campaign promotes the responsible use of paper, while also reminding people of just how effective paper is in communicating on logical and emotional levels in so many business and personal settings."
Since Domtar unveiled the Paper Because campaign last year, there has been substantial support from paper industry, printing, graphic design and marketing partners. Many have picked up elements of the campaign and provided significant exposure on websites, in catalogs, at conferences and other outlets.
The Paper Because campaign has also received positive industry recognition. The Graphic**Arts Show Company gave its "Positively Print" award in September to Domtar to spotlight the variety of ways in which the effectiveness of print is being promoted. In addition, the campaign won Best of Show
