NewspaperDirect Launches "Say No to Newsprint, Say Yes to Newspapers" Corporate Sustainability Program
GLOBE 2008 Attendees Receive 1 Month's Free Access to PressDisplay.com
VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - March 5, 2008) - NewspaperDirect Inc., the world leader in
multi-channel newspaper and magazine content distribution, is launching its
"Say NO to newsprint, say YES to newspapers" corporate sustainability
program at GLOBE 2008,
March 12-14, 2008 in Vancouver, BC.
With "Say NO to Newsprint, Say YES to Newspapers," NewspaperDirect is
offering businesses and governments an environmentally friendly alternative
to the printed newspapers they normally purchase in bulk for the office.
The program is designed to support an organization's efforts to create a
"greener" environment at the office and in the homes of their employees.
PressDisplay.com will give
employees instant access to more than 600 publications from 74 countries in
38 languages on their PCs, Macs, smart phones, BlackBerry devices, iPhones
and iPod Touch devices, often before they hit the news stands.
PressDisplay.com also enhances the reading experience with a customizable
user interface, easy-to-use navigation tools and powerful keyword
searching, media monitoring, email sharing, blogging, instant translation
in up to 12 languages, integrated audio, back issue access, photo galleries
and social network interfaces to Facebook, Digg and Del.icio.us.
"With global warming at the top of the public agenda, successful businesses
understand that corporate sustainability has moved beyond brand-promoting
philanthropy and has become an operational imperative to corporate
excellence and a more profitable bottom line," said Alexander Kroogman, CEO
of NewspaperDirect. "Our 'Say NO to Newsprint, Say YES to Newspapers'
program lets companies provide employees personal use access to PressDisplay.com for about the
price of a single newspaper subscription -- at home, at work, during their
commute, or when traveling."
As a media sponsor of GLOBE 2008, NewspaperDirect is offering all attendees
one month of free online access to the PressDisplay.com service. They
simply have to register at www.pressdisplay.com using offer code: GLOBE
"GLOBE 2008 attracts thousands of environmental business and government
leaders who value instant access to business-critical information no matter
where they are," said Nancy Wright, vice president of marketing for The
GLOBE Foundation. "Corporate sustainability is a key theme of GLOBE 2008,
and so we are pleased to be able to offer attendees access to PressDisplay.com, a more
sustainable option for tracking important issues in mainstream media from
around the world."

world and is accessed by millions of users every day who have,
