wonderful ... let us do our share in keeping the environment clean!

We use lots of papers in the office…for printing documents and the like, as well as cc’ing to relevant people. Everytime I print pages and pages of paper and photocopy more of them, I can’t help thinking about all those trees that have been felled, and the effect on forests and the environment, in processing and disposing them. One way to assuage my guilt of using lots of paper is to reuse them, i.e. if they can be reused. And once both sides have been used, what next? They go to a box next to my desk. Once full, I would carry them to the general junk shop to sell them. But it is still not efficient enough. We still use lots more. The best way is to reduce all the printing and keep the files electronically. I do that if it’s something I can control. But if it involves others and especially if required by the system, what to do? Gotta print them still.

  3. Arlene,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
    Just came across your blog, enjoyed reading what you have written and this item caught my eyes.

    Whenever I email some people who do not hesitate to print even unimportant data, I end my message with:
    “Save Trees. Print only when necessary” or “Please consider the enviroment before printing this email.”
    It is a suggested text by an enviromental group.

    Continue to write .. your style is good. Regards to Kai. Love,

    Tita Linda
