On what paper the invitation to the inauguration is printed?

The inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama is exactly in two weeks and it's going to be an historic and special event. One question that at least I asked myself was on what paper the invitations to the event will be printed? today (thanks to CSR wire) I found the answer!

When it comes to the invitations, the inauguration is about as green as it gets. It will be printed on CLASSIC CREST Papers by Neenah Paper and according to their news release, the environmental profile of the paper is as followed: completely FSC Certified, Green-e Certified as being made with 100 percent renewable energy, made 100 percent Carbon Neutral, and Processed Chlorine Free. Additionally, Recycled 100 Natural White is made from 100 percent post consumer fiber.

Kudos to Neenah Paper! This is great news, especially since every part of the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama is very symbolic, and I'm sure it's no coincidence that the invitations are very eco-friendly.

Neenah Paper claims that CLASSIC CREST Paper is the greenest premium paper in the world. In any case, I'm positive it will be remembered from now on as the paper that was part of an historic moment. Hopefully it will be the beginning of an era when we'll see such the use of green paper not only on historic events but everywhere.

And now all you have to do is just to receive such an invitation..
