ACCORDING TO A RECENT SURVEY, “70 percent of Americans, including 69 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds, say they prefer to read print and paper communications than reading off a screen.”
The survey was commissioned by Two Sides, the fast-growing non-profit organization created to promote the responsible production, use and sustainability of print and paper. So, it may be a bit self-serving (hmmm…wonder if that’s ever happened before!). Still, there are some findings that may be of interest to those of us who know newspapers are not dying.
It also says 68 percent of those surveyed believe that paper records are more sustainable than electronic record storage and that paper is more pleasant to handle and touch than other media (67 percent).
