To print or not to print, that is the question
As I get ready to start my new job (more about that soon), I have to remind myself to be very conservative when printing. With email being the main communication method these days, I don't see the need to constantly print out everything. Try going green by only printing something when you absolutely need to. Consider printing on both sides of the paper and printing in black and white (color hues are typically more toxic). You can also use the other side as scratch paper. Don't forget to recycle your paper as well. Since the average U.S. office worker uses *10,000* sheets of paper per year, please keep this in mind when you click Print.
