Paper Saving – Environment – GOOD

Paper Saving – Environment – GOOD.

 

 

Just found this website, GOOD (www.good.is – you gotta love that domain name) and then found this amazing article about something so easy, that would save so many trees it’s a crime that people aren’t aware of this.

What is this something? The website changethemargins.com is calling for the nation’s (and indeed the world’s) printer owners to change the margins on printed documents from the pretty standard 1.25 inches all around to just 0.75 inches.

It may sound like a small change, but if everyone in the nation did it, we’d save a little less than a Rhode Island’s worth of trees every year.

Amazing, right? I think of it in terms of this is such a simple fix, but if it were actually implemented in the US, and possibly the world, it could make such a big difference to the environment.

Help spread the word, eh?
