Champion Sustainable Paper Use at Work

PaperIntermediate

*In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus outbreak, please practice social distancing and follow government guidelines for gatherings and activities. Your health and your safety are our top priorities.*

With around 400 million tons of paper produced each year and growing, our unsustainable printing habits are adding pressure on the earth’s last remaining natural forests. These same habits can also be costing your business money. Reducing your company’s paper footprint is not just about printing less, it involves ensuring the paper-based products you buy comes from responsibly sourced forests and teaching employees to think differently about how to change the way they think about printing in their daily jobs.
