DMA Celebrates Earth Day and Invites Marketers to 'Recycle Please' & Take the 'Green 15' Pledge
Washington, DC, April 22, 2010 — Direct Marketing Association (DMA) today asked all marketers worldwide to join its “Recycle Please” campaign and take its “Green 15” Pledge in honor of Earth Day 2010. Both programs inspire innovation, encourage awareness, and deliver environmental benefits.
DMA’s “Recycle Please” campaign is a nationwide public education program that asks DMA members to prominently display the “Recycle Please” logo on their catalogs and direct mail pieces for the purpose of encouraging consumers to recycle them after reading. The campaign was developed by DMA with the assistance of its member-driven Committee on Environmental and Social Responsibility (CESR). To date, more than 100 companies and nonprofit organizations are using the “Recycle Please” logo.
The “Green 15” Pledge program, also developed by DMA’s CESR, asks marketers and suppliers to attest that their organizations are taking certain steps throughout the end-to-end direct marketing process to improve their environmental footprint and “triple bottom-line” performance (people, planet, profit). In June 2008, DMA’s Board of Directors established its first of several “green goals” for measuring success in key areas of the “Green 15.”
“Our ‘Green 15’ Pledge and ‘Recycle Please’ programs provide marketers with the means to participate in helping the environment,” said
