Saving a Tree is Easier Than You Think

Did you know that by simply replacing 1 ton of virgin paper with just 30% postconsumer paper saves the equivalent of 7.2 trees? And, using 100% postconsumer paper saves the equivalent of 24 trees.

The average office worker, according to the World Wildlife Fund, uses more than 10,000 sheets of paper. That's about 1.2 trees per person, per year. Yikes.

Here's some easy tips on how to minimize paper user.

Print only when absolutely necessary. With the use of the Internet, paper use is going down. We're also reading our news online now, which minimizes the need for a paper newspaper.

Ask your employer to purchase 100% recycled paper from an office supply store.

Changing the margins on your pages can greatly reduce paper use. Simply narrow the margins to .75 inches from 1.25 inches in Word. Visit : http://www.changethemargins.com to help promote these easy movement.

At home, register at greendimes.com or catalogchoice.org and reduce the amount of junk mail you receive.

Sign the Forest Ethics petition at http://www.forestethics.com to petition Congress to enact a "Do Not Mail" registry.

Pay attention to labels to find recycled postconsumer products, and look for companies that practice sustainability.
