Waste Reduction - Top Office Paper Reduction Tips
Quick tips for using less paper and saving money for your office.
Why not try a few of these below ideas and see how fast the savings add up for you?
NOTE: DO NOT TRY TO GO PAPERLESS COLD TURKEY. START OFF BY SIMPLY GOING “LESS PAPER” TO START WITH.
We could not recommend jumping into a completely paperless office right away.
This is why we would like to make the announcement and offer advice on reducing first.
Going paperless, or simply using “less paper” is a process that requires great consideration. Many businesses transition to a paperless office, may be too quick, and they soon find out exactly how overwhelming the move can be.
We recommend starting off at a pace to suit and then progressively move into a e-Paper business environment.
Do not rush.
For example, you could simply start by:
|•||Printing and photocopying on both sides of paper.|
|•||Printing on both sides will cut paper use by 50% straight away!|
|•||Make sure your office machines are able to print or copy on both sides.|
|•||Invest in that duplex printer add-on.|
|•||Reduce font sizes and increase margin sizes to squeeze more on each page.|
|•||Use e-mail whenever you can and only print out if absolutely necessary.|
|•||Review drafts and include comments on screen, and return them electronically.|
|•||If you have to print drafts, do so at a smaller scale (more than one page per side).|
|•||Use overhead projectors and white boards in meetings instead of paper handouts.|
|•||Eliminate unnecessary printed forms.|
|•||Use internet publishing and electronic forms to reduce paper copies.|
|•||Receive and send your faxes electronically. Get rid of that paper based fax machine.|
|•||Set targets for reducing the paper your office uses and then try to achieve them. Ensure everyone understands.|
|•||Use an Electronic File Management and Archival System.|
|•||Don’t print it – back it up!|
|•||DO NOT DISMISS THE IMPORTANCE OF BACKING UP DATA. YOUR DATA IS GOLD!|
