1. In an office setting we often use a lot of paper without even thinking about the impact that it will have on the environment. How many times have you printed off something that you didn’t really need, or printed a document one sided when double-sided would have worked just fine? These little uses of paper tend to pile up quite quickly and they can have a major effect on the environment. For example, were you aware of the fact that the average office worker uses ten thousand sheets of paper every year? In the USA, four million tons of copy paper are consumed every year! It’s shocking to imagine this much paper being wasted, so this infographic created by Stinky Ink offers tips on how we can offset our printing footprint.
The infographic offers a lot of helpful advice on how the average office can reduce their footprint, including printing only the pages needed, proofreading documents on screen rather than printing them off and circulating memos via email. Could your office possibly make a small change like this that would make a big difference in your paper consumption? Take a look at this infographic for some ideas and think about how you could adapt your working habits in order to save paper and protect the environment.
