Greenify Your Office: Don't be a Paper Pusher

October 27, 2008

Cutting down on paper consumption is one of the best ways to Greenify your business. Have you ever thought about how much paper you use on a daily basis?  When dieters try to lose weight, they are often asked to keep a daily journal of what they eat. Try doing that with paper and you'll be shocked at how much you consume and how easily you can Greenify.

In 1961, average global per capita paper consumption stood at 25 kilogrammes or 55 pounds. By 2005, the figure had more than doubled to 54 kilogrammes or 119 pounds. That kind of conspicuous consumption leaves a large carbon footprint, but there are ways to chop that figure down.

When buying printer paper, look for recycled paper with a high percentage of post-consumer content and the minimum of chlorine bleaching. Even recycled paper gobbles up a great deal of energy, water, and chemical resources in its processing (toxic pulp slurry is the paper recycling industry's dirty secret). When using the real stuff, print on both sides of the page when appropriate and use misprints as notepaper.

Some employees still prefer to read things out of hand, on paper.  Encourage them to read their work on the computer by purchasing easy-to-look at non-glare computer screens and reminding them that every little bit helps.

Also, choose printers and photocopiers that do double-sided printing.   If your office ships packages, reuse boxes and use shredded waste paper as packing material.

Finally, make sure that paper recycling receptables are prominently and conveniently positioned for your employees and customers to use.  Nothing reminds so well as repetition and convenience.
