Who’s talking about Step Forward Paper?TM
You might hear that we’re supposedly entering the post-paper age—it’s all PDFs and tablets from here—but I for one still have paper laying around my desk. A lot of it.
Woody Harrelson is hugging a tree. Not just any tree, but a massive, century-old kiawe on Honolulu’s glistening Waikiki Beach. This particular species, a member of the deciduous mesquite family, was brought to Hawaii by a Catholic priest in 1827. Its eradication in Peru more than 1,000 years ago is believed to have led to ecological collapse and, ultimately, the demise of an ancient civilization.
In “The Hunger Games,” Woody Harrelson’s character is in charge of helping tributes Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark escape a deadly arena. In real life, the actor is dedicating his time to a task that’s even more daunting: saving the planet.
I recently caught up with Woody Harrelson, who is changing the way paper is made with his partner, Jeff Golfman. Their company is called Step Forward Paper and their paper is made out of 80 percent wheat-straw waste and 20 percent Forest Stewardship Council certified wood fiber.
