Staples and Domtar Hold a Customer Learning and Appreciation Event with Support from AWA

AWA is proud to be partners with industry leaders in sustainability, Staples and Domtar.  In early June we joined forces to host a field day for Staples and Domtar customers to explore the working forests of the southeast that produce the forest products we use every day. 

We learned how responsible paper procurement efforts help benefit local economies, support landowners in good forest management, and protect conservation values in the southern Appalachians.  Not another typical day at the office!
