Go Green

Everyone has heard the term “Go Green.” It can hold different meanings for different people, but it mostly encourages companies and households alike to lead eco-friendly lifestyles and adopt sustainable practices.

People thought it was a passing trend but the need for “going green” is here to stay.

One great way of being kind to the environment in your business is through reducing the amount of printing you use.

Here are reasons why your office should cut back on printing:

  1. Of course, it’s good for the environment! Did you know that every ton of recycled paper saves about 17 trees? Or that when paper rots or is composted it emits methane gas, which is 25 times more toxic than CO2? Implementing green printing habits in your office will help protect forests and help protect people from these toxins.
  2. It draws in business! Research has proven that the majority of Americans, if given the choice between doing business with a company that is eco-friendly or one that is not, they would choose the eco-friendly company. Being green can be used as a marketing tool!
  3. You will like this one: It saves money! Did you know a gallon of ink costs up to $4,000? Or that the average American employee goes through 10,000 sheets of paper a year? Or that each printer in your office costs on average $300 in energy costs a year? By implementing eco-friendly printing practices in your company you will not only save the earth but you can save anywhere from 20 percent and up on your monthly or annual printing budget.

Going green is good for you, the environment and good for business. There is no reason why you should not implement green printing habits in your office today!
