Around the world, millions of trees are cut to produce paper every day causing huge pressures in our environment. Landslide, climate change, flooding – these are the threats we’re facing due to the expanding demand for paper production and wood harvesting each year.
But how can each of us help? Here are some tips on what you can do to protect our environment:
Reduce paper usage. Do not print unnecessary and wasteful documents.
Use both sides of the sheet of paper. Also, take advantage of the technology. Use email, Internet/Intranet, FTP, scanners and document management software to store and manage electronic documents and images of paper documents.
When you have to buy any paper products make sure it is recycled. They’re cheaper too!
Doing these simple things will not just help in protecting our environment, it can also save us a lot of money!
