Given the nature of their products, paper plants are highly
flammable. Therefore, International Paper Company frequently used
asbestos insulation in its walls, floors, and roofs as a protective
measure. Asbestos insulation was also used on pipes and boilers
throughout International Paper plants. This material intended to protect
people turned out to severely damage their health The producers did
not reveal that their asbestos products were dangerous, even though
asbestos was known to cause illnesses as far back as the 1920s.
Consequently, many former employees of International Paper have been
diagnosed with mesothelioma following decades of service.

About International Paper View Our Company Overview
How does a company with a 100+ year heritage in paper products stay relevant in an increasingly digital world? International Paper transformed its business model over a several-year period to do just that. Which meant that the brand had to evolve as well.MWC developed a new global brand platform that was integrated into every facet of the company, including International Paper’s trade show presence. To introduce the revitalized IP brand to uber-creative designers at the HOW Design Conference, we got uber-creative. Recognizing that most design ideas still start on paper, we wanted to demonstrate what happens when something digital returns there.Meet Senseless Robot, the random-graffiti-art robot that created stunning displays on IP poster paper. Attendees could enter to win posters created by the robot by posting a photograph of the IP booth on Instagram. It worked. So well, in fact, that Instagram shut down our feed for having too much activity. No worries, though. Twitter substituted just fine. And International Paper stole the show.
