The easiest way to reduce paper usage is using double-sided printing. This can halve your paper consumption overnight.

Double sided printing can be setup as a default setting on the printer or can be changed per printing job dependant on need.

Other ideas to save paper include:

  • Reminding staff to not print our unnecessary emails and to collect all printing
  • Keep a stack of used paper and uncollected printing, in a designated tray for internal memos, scratch paper
  • Unsubscribe to journals and magazines (where duplicate copies are received in the same workplace)
  • Unsubscribe to Junk mail
