This spring the Swedish postal company PostNord has been busy. They report that sales of stamps and postage-paid packaging surpass the estimated levels for the period by 30 percent. Their app “Riktiga Vykort”, which is a service that turns your favourite photos into printed postcards, has doubled in sales.
In other words: in these times of social distancing, restrictions prohibiting meetings with loved ones and digital communication being the sole option, there is a growing need for something analogue and tangible. Postcards, letters and parcels are experiencing a new high and our guess is that the curve will not flatten anytime soon. We’ve said it before – there is something about paper.
The printed ”messengers” that still do find their way to our hands get an exclusive quality and quite a bit of attention, simply by being analogue. Send a greeting and spread some summer love – it will be much appreciated.
From all of us at Multicopy, we would like to take the opportunity to wish you a relaxing and joyful summer – even if it’s not by postcard this time
Some people and organizations argue that old forests are more sustainable than new ones, no matter how responsible the forestry and harvesting. That any company who uses wood for its products is causing a major negative impact on our climate – when it comes to reduction of carbon emissions and the biodiversity of our forests. But it’s not a black and white question. As a matter of fact, there are several upsides to harvesting and managing forests to get a hold of the remarkable, renewable raw material called wood.
Alongside Gasum’s biogas plant at Nymölla mill, another sustainable initiative is in the making. All over the world, the demand for sustainable textile fibers is growing and the new facility is a demonstration plant for TreeToTextile, owned by Stora Enso, H&M Group, Inter IKEA Group, and LSCS Invest.
Gasum’s biogas plant at Nymölla Mill is now producing liquefied biogas (LBG) at full speed. We created an icon that communicates the benefits in a clear way; how we manage to, not only make use of residue from the process of turning wood into paper, but also make way for a fossil free future.
