Red Cedar Log takes steps to ‘go green’
Posted by Hannah Emmert on January 29, 2009
The editors of Michigan State’s yearbook, the Red Cedar Log, have taken steps to reduce the environmental impact of the 2009 yearbook, the theme of which is “Go Green.”
The pages will be printed on 80 percent post-consumer product paper, the cover will be made of recycled cardboard and the leftover ink from the production process will be reused. MSU’s yearbook is among the largest in the nation—17,000 copies of the 400-page book are printed annually—meaning these small steps will make a big difference.
Lyn Vito, the business manager for the Red Cedar Log, has had to deal with the stress of budgeting the extra costs associated with a green yearbook. However, she said despite the extra hours she’s had to put in, she thinks it will be worth it in the end.
