Videos!

You read right! David once again steps in front of the camera and gives some insight into making paper here at GHP. We’re starting off this series talking about the various inputs that go into making paper such as pulp, water and energy. Give the videos a watch and let us know what you think!

Kicking off a video series!

No posty in a long time! Well, hopefully this is worth the wait. David and I have been scheming up some ways to deliver some quick info in tasty little chunks and video seems like the best way to do it. This first video might be a little rough around the edges but, that’s why [...]

Green Enterprise Conference: Satsop, WA – A link and some thoughts

Just a little writeup about the recent “Green Enterprise Conference” in Satsop at which GHP’s own David Quigg spoke and moderated a panel. Take a looksie! Link after jump. Most of the time with Daily World bits like this though, I would normally just Tweet and leave it at that. Trudging through the normal newspapery [...]

Harbor 100 pulls some CRAZY CO2 numbers

Don’t worry: it’s in a good way! I’m astounded. And from the sound of it, even people at Grays Harbor Paper are surprised by the numbers in the recent carbon assessment from Carbon Solutions Northwest. Let’s start with some points of reference. These were all taken from the EDF’s PaperCalculator, BTW: Virgin paper produces an [...]

Energy Management is back again!

This just keeps going! That last post about how energy is becoming more and more of a priority for businesses; well, it just keeps coming up. This time from the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) [I assume because people saying NWEEA "neweeeeahhh" would get annoying. Personally, I can't think "Northwest" and not type NW]. A [...]

Talk to the “energy generation” department…

Grays Harbor Paper just got a little “virtual fist-bump” from MarketShift Strategies out of Portland. Some great mention of how important the energy generation at GHP has become at the mill. I mean, it’s a big deal since, as the post mentions, paper production is “the second most energy intensive industry group in the manufacturing [...]

Awesome little shopping video at London Drugs… Oh, was that Harbor 100 I saw?

Just got word about this little video showing off some green products already on the shelves at London Drugs (Store #4, Broadway & Cambie, Vancouver).

Spring cleaning and how “free dump day” changed for my parents

My parents decided to do a bit of cleaning over the weekend and, in the past, I’ve been away at school when this sudden urge drives them to clear some room in their house. Historically, the spring cleaning ritual has left me either upset or confused because I either realized that something that I was [...]

Buying my first ream of Harbor 100!

Wahh!!! I’m a dork but it’s kind of a big deal. After all those high school papers being printed on whatever my parents had in the printer and the college years of either printing on campus or taking paper from the printers (Hey! I’m pretty sure WSU Pullman used Grays Harbor Paper so… it wasn’t [...]

Walmart’s Sustainability Goals

So, totally lame, I know, but I put the Walmart Sustainability announcement on my calendar and watched the whole webcast in sweats. If you are seriously interested, there’s a link at the break but the announcement was kind of low key; the kind of event that you might see in your high school auditorium versus [...]

Funding communtity programs with… wind!

If you haven’t heard the recent buzz around the Harbor, a pretty substantial wind project is being erected in Grayland, WA. The substantial nature of the project is not because of it’s size or scale, though. In fact, the current project consists a mere four turbines and as the pictures show, these are pretty typical [...]

Grays Harbor Paper mentioned at Christine Rains Graphic Design

All sorts of things are constantly going on around Grays Harbor Paper… almost too many to keep track of as a lowly blogger. Sad story, I know. But what I CAN latch on to quickly is when someone in the blogosphere has something to say about GHP. This is just a little mention from a [...]

What exactly is “sustainability?” AIGA Portland’s SHIFT: A Green Salon

This is terrible; I’m actually going to start a post with the examination of a word. Stick with me though… I won’t be calling upon the powers of Merriam-Webster to help me with my intro. I’m also not going to go into much detail about each SHIFT presenter with this post; this is just one [...]

Getting set for AIGA’s SHIFT: A Green Salon

I love design. With that comes a love of making things and imagining things as they could be. As we all know though, we don’t just create from nothingness; an input is required for an output. When the concern for available resources and waste becomes real, what role do designers have to integrate sustainable practices [...]

Shiny, new sustainability report from… Grays Harbor Paper!

Woah! Grays Harbor Paper continues to blow me away with every meeting. I have seen several PDF revisions of this sustainability report and nothing compares to the actual release; seeing the announcement on front of the website and seeing printed copies from the printers is an amazing moment. (Of course, printed on their amazing Harbor [...]
