The Best Advice on Reducing Print Waste to Try;
Printers with a Bang
It might not seem like your personal printer in the office is a huge drain on energy or resources – not in the grand scheme of things. However, when you multiply that drain by the number of people in the office who are all printing at will, the cost is significant. It’s always worth considering an investment in an energy efficient printer that have power save features rather than staying consistently in standby mode.
Ink & toner
Nowadays, we are fortunate to live in a world with such a diverse range of recycled ink and toner options. Refill your cartridges rather than buying all new ones and can lower your impact on the environment. In addition to this, use recycled paper and your company’s impact on the environment will be entirely minimized.
Print the Marketing Materials You Need
I don’t know about you, but when I think of an office space, I consider the number of boxes lying under desks or in storage that are never used – stuffed full or brochures, leaflets, posters and flyers that were never shown to the public. One of the best ways to negate this in your office, is by printing only the marketing materials you need. Sounds easy, right? Well, what if you can’t afford the over-and-back conversations with your designer that come when trying to order new marketing materials? It’s always been thought of as easier to order more than you need, to be on the safe side.
