Reduce Your “Paper” Footprint
Nearly every office, large or small, relies on large quantities of paper. Here are a few ways to reduce your “paper” footprint. Not only are these tips eco-friendly, they offer cost savings as well.
Use both sides of paper: When making copies, set your machine to use both sides of paper and cut your consumption in half.
Shred and reuse unwanted paper: Instead of throwing away old documents, shred them and reuse them as packing material in shipments.
Reuse boxes: When you get shipments in, save your boxes so that you can use them again for shipments out.
Offer paper recycling: Put a paper recycling receptacle next to every printer, copier and fax machine so that employees can deposit unwanted paper in them.
Avoid color printing: Color printing generally uses more ink, so print in black and white when you can.
