The title of this blog is vague on purpose, since I can’t assume you’ll read my words the moment they are published at X AM on Earth Day, April 22, 2016.
But do some math now. The average American workers uses an astonishing 10,000 sheets of paper per year. That calculates to 833.3 sheets a month, 27.3 a day, 1.14 an hour.
And all that paper that you have used between the publish date and INSERT TIME HERE adds up to a 40 foot hardwood tree for each of us, plus gallons of water to produce that paper.
On this National Earth Day, take a few moments to consider the costs of all that paper usage. It’s not just the trees that add up, but all that time and money wasted filing, storing, accessing, and refilling your paper documents.
Here are couple of videos to ponder (each will only take 2% of a sheet of paper to watch – aka, 2 minutes).
Save some green in the forest.
This video explores the heavy toll that printing and sending and copying and filing forms has on natural resources. And how switching to digital document review, approval, and signature can make a stunning difference.
Save some green in your budget.
This video explores how paper-dependent processes rob companies of billions of dollars a year. And how switching to digital document review, approval, and signature can bring about significant savings of time, money, and natural resources.
