Let's Work Together

As of press time for this column, Puerto
Rico is still reeling from the effects of Hurricane
Maria. Early estimates for the cost of the damage
to the US South and Southeast from hurricanes
Harvey and Irma range over US$100 billion.
Images from the aftermath of these storms show
the devastating effects that they've had on the
natural and built environments in those areas-
but they also show scenes of rescue workers and
citizens helping those affected. Stories abound of
people coming together to help, and of those who
already are beginning to think about the next step:
how to rebuild.
For this issue's annual Proud to Be a Papermaker
article, we've collected just a few stories of companies that are helping relief efforts. I'm sure there
are countless other stories out there, and that many
in our industry have played a part in helping ease
the burden.
As I read these stories, I was humbled to realize that it's not just about cash donation-paper
and packaging are critical in so many ways to
helping people in disaster situations, just as they
are in everyday life. Printing and writing, health

and hygiene products, packaging for transport
and storage of food and goods-these are things
that allow society to function and to advance.
Think about that: it's not hyperbole. Our products
improve human quality of life and are the backbone of societal innovation. In countless ways, they
move us forward and bring us together.
From the grand scale of society at large, to the
smaller scale of a single mill-the effort to rebuild
requires working in partnership. Our Rebuilds/
Conversions feature looks at market conditions,
new technologies, and project results that I hope
readers will find useful on their jobs. We've also got
content on vacuum best practices, an interesting
"greenfield/brownfield" mill project, and more.
This may be our last issue of the year, but we're
already planning new things for Paper360° in
2018. Information sharing really does bring people
together, and our industry and its people prove
every day that together we can accomplish great
things. On behalf of our hard-working editors and
all those who work to bring you this publication,
I'd like to thank our readers for being a part of the
Paper360° community.
