Using their recent research study on Sustainability in Print Media, John Risseeuw and Stephen Hoskins provided a framework for understanding the basic science of sustainability, relating it to art materials and practice. Risseeuw and Hoskins began with definitions: sustainability and different understandings of the theory; associated terms like carbon footprint and environmental burden; as well as current practices by industry and government. This paper was reworked to be given at the IMPACT conference September 2009, panel 5 Print in the Social Sphere.
