Another in a series of posts dedicated to making conscious decisions for living a better life.
Since finishing school Peter and I have found that we rarely need to print from our computers. Maybe for craft projects or directions from Google, but not the multi page papers we once printed. It is easy to say, “put scrap paper in!” before we printed something, but much harder to do it.Â It was often that we forgot and would print something inconsequential on a beautiful, white, clean piece of paper. What a waste!
To solve this problem we’ve taken all the new paper out of the printer and replaced it with ‘scrap’ that has printing only on one side. Now when we print something it automatically goes on the recycled paper. If we’re printing something nice we remember to put clean paper in.
It is such a simple, free, earth friendly solution…I’m sorry I didn’t think of it sooner.
