Green Printing and Copying


  • Faxing
    Eliminate Cover Sheets
    Consider printing faxes on scrap paper
    Email instead of faxing whenever possible


  • Printing and Copying
    Make your life more PAPERLESS by sending any documents you can electronically
    Do all editing on screen OR, if a hardcopy draft is necessary, use scrap paper.
    Always utilize the other side of the paper and print/copy double-sided if duplex is available.

  • Paper
    Whenever possible, use post-consumer recycled-content paper.
    The cost and quality differences of recycled to virgin paper today is negligible.
    And remember to re-use blank sides of used paper for inkjet printing and scratch paper.
