Press Release

Domtar has renewed its sponsorship of the Environmental Film Festival, the largest such showcase in the U.S. The 20th annual event, which opens tomorrow in Washington, D.C. and runs for 12 days, will feature 180 films, including 93 world premieres from 42 countries. This is the second straight year that Domtar has sponsored the Festival, providing its Cougar paper, from its Earth Choice line of environmentally and socially responsible papers, for the printing of the Festival programs.

The Eli Lilly and Company Foundation has pledged $100,000 to the American Red Cross for its tornado disaster relief efforts. The donation will help communities in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Alabama, and Georgia that have been devastated by recent tornadoes. In addition, through its matching gifts program, the Lilly Foundation will provide a one-to-one match of employee donations to the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
