Saving Paper, Planting Trees

Even if you want to save the planet you may be unintentionally guilty of wasting paper. That’s because it’s estimated that the average employee wastes 6 pages of paper every day. You know, those mysterious blank pages in the middle of documents and that near-empty last page with just a line on it? Well, they can be history now thanks to Green Print. Touted as a way to save money today and trees tomorrow, Green Print helps reduce waste with their paper-saving software. And best of all, 1% of their sales goes to plant new trees. How much paper do you waste every day? How much could you save?
