Save Ink and Paper - Green Living Tip Brought to you by Ideal Bite
The one on your printer. Unless you're printing something superimportant, save ink and paper by using Draft Mode and, if you can, printing double-sided. Who could conscientiously object to that?
- Enlisting less waste. Each year, the world's discarded cartridges, stacked end-to-end, could circle the planet three times.
- Pacifying your budget. No rocket science here: If you print double-sided, you'll buy half as much paper, and if you print 100 pages in Draft Mode instead of regular mode, you'll save as much as $2 on ink.
- Quick release. In a PC World test, a typical inkjet printed 12 ppm (pages per minute) in regular mode but cranked out 36 ppm in Draft.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: Here at the RCE office, we print as little as possible. When we absolutely have to print something we always choose double sided, on paper made from recycled materials; if by some chance it has to be one sided, we re-use the un-printed side for note paper and then recycle it when we're done with it. On a personal note, I'm happy to be home from a fantastic trip down under. I hope you all had a great couple of weeks and didn't miss my posts too much! ~Jen
