New SSJR Environmental Initiative
10 November 2010
A firm wide effort to save paper when printing has been put in place and all printers and copiers have been changed to print double-sided.
SSJR consumes about 40 boxes or 200,000 sheets of plain white paper per month. Each box weighs 20 pounds, so we would reduce our paper consumption by about 4800 pounds per year. A mature hardwood tree yields about 1-2000 pounds of paper, so we spare about 3 mature trees per year.
In addition to doing the right thing we also save money. We spend about $1300 per month on paper, so double-sided printing will also save us $7800 per year.
