Workman Publishing offers 100% recyclable calendar design for 2021
Workman Publishing Co. now offers a new eco-friendly calendar design: Starting with the 2021 calendar line, all Page-A-Day calendars will be 100% recyclable. The plastic backer will be replaced with a sturdy chipboard stand, and each calendar will be printed on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper. In addition, each Page-A-Day calendar will be packaged in paper boxes with a sticker closure and without plastic shrink-wrap. The reverse of each page will be designed with a grid pattern allowing for reuse of calendar pages as a notepad.
“Workman invented the Page-A-Day calendar format 43 years ago,” said Janet Harris, publisher, Workman Calendars, “And for 2021 we’ve reimagined it with a new environmentally friendly format. The product is now 100% recyclable. No plastic backer. FSC-certified paper. Even the back of each page can be used as notepaper. Each one of our 37 Page-A-Day titles for 2021 embodies Workman’s core values of creativity, craftsmanship, integrity—and now sustainability.”
For more than 40 years, the revolutionary Page-A-Day calendar has been a part of the industry. Workman calendars are bestsellers and have been from the beginning: The Page-A-Day calendar line has combined over 98 million copies sold since they first hit the market. From long-established partners, like Audubon and Sandra Boynton, to recent ones, including Atlas Obscura, Flow, and Rick Steves’ Europe, Workman matches customers with the brands and ideas they love and love to see, year after year.
“When the world sometimes seems to be spinning out of our control, it feels particularly good to do something meaningful and concrete in our collective fight against the climate crisis,” said Susan Bolotin, editorial director of Workman Publishing. “It makes me proud. Besides, the new format looks so modern! I love it.”
