Top Ten Tips to Go Green with Paper Products at the Office
What happened to the dreams of a paperless office where all the files were stored on computers and management believed in green paper practices? Apparently those dreams have gone the way of the dinosaur, and despite computers with hundreds of gigabytes of storage we continue to stack paper up to the ceiling, even though we donít really need it. If you want to become more eco-friendly at the office, a good place to start is with paper products. Here are some tips to help you get started with green paper practices.
1. Keep Files in a Computer
Computers have a neat filing system with a search feature that can find a file you have misplaced in mere seconds. What happens when you lose a paper file; is there a search function for that? Paper files are really useless with modern technology, keeping files in the computer is far more eco-friendly and efficient. Simply remember to keep the information on backup disks, and itís just as safe as it would be on physical paper.
2. Send Emails Instead of Paper
Both faxes and paper letters take far longer to send and are far less eco-friendly than sending an email. Emailing information is a great green paper practice, and doesnít have the risk of errors and distortions like a fax does, or the risk of loss like a letter does. Email is becoming more professionally acceptable, and a grammatically correct email with a company letter head is oftentimes just as appropriate as a letter would be.
