Print Hasn’t Died, It’s Going Green!

As technology continues to develop, businesses have the opportunity of operating almost paper free! Today’s employees can conduct multiple tasks online and share documents using electronic files and cloud services. Several companies offer the option to receive billing statement via email while also encouraging customers to pay their bills online. This change in technology has made great headway in reducing waste and cutting back on printing but print is not dead!

  • Paper accounts for more than one third of all recyclables collected in the United States, by weight.
