Unlike the majority of unimaginatively named sustainability-minded products out there, the 'e' in 'e-paper' does not stand for environmental, ecological or even eco-friendly. You need to envision a more Tron-like universe here. The 'e'? Electronic. Or even better: electro.

Rock ‘n’ Roll has never struck me as a resource-wasteful industry, until I considered the impact a major outdoor festival might have on its site.
