A Paperless World
You might find it strange that I’m writing a blog about a paperless world when I’m in the printing business. But let’s face it, a completely paperless world is not feasible. I don’t know about you, but unless I write it down, or have something physical in front of me, I can’t remember a darn thing. I’ve tried to voice-text myself notes, but either I talk too fast, have a funny accent, or the windows are all down in the car because the interpretation I get is NOTHING what I initially intended.
I really laughed at this video…may be a bit extreme, but definitely shows the absurdity of being “paperless”
Many times I see a line at the end of an email asking me to think before I print. Sometimes, that line actually causes the email message to extend onto 2 pages, therefore necessitating yet another sheet of paper 🙂
I got an email once that said the following at the end:
“Please feel free to print this email along with all attachments. Trees are a farmed product grown expressly for paper. It makes no more sense to conserve paper to save trees than it makes sense to save cloth to conserve cotton. Paper is natural, organic, biodegradable, renewable and sustainable. Working forests employ millions of Americans and help the environment by providing clean air and water, wildlife habitat and carbon storage. There are more trees planted commercially each year than are consumed; there are more trees than 100 years ago. Failure to print quickly converts forests to strip malls and parking lots. Please go ahead print and take satisfaction in knowing you are doing your part to help the environment and to save forests.”
