Todd Truesdale is a Harvard University graduate, biologist, activist, and environmentalist. He founded and ran a rainforest research camp on the west coast of Borneo, Indonesia in the 1980’s. Alarmed by rampant deforestation in the rest of Indonesia, Todd returned to Boston to start a business focused on protecting the environment. In 1983, he founded Recycled Paper Printing to create a movement that would transform the paper and printing industry.

Todd advises multiple non-profits on marketing and strategy and environmental stewardship, most recently the Massachusetts Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children, Massachusetts Institute for a New CommonWealth (a non-partisan think tank) and the Boston Children’s Museum where he is on the Board of Overseers.
