Earth Day may be behind us, but that's no reason to stop "going green." In fact, there are plenty of fast, easy ways to minimize your environmental impact today--all by putting your printers and copiers to work for you!

Simple Solutions

Printers and copiers are a huge part of everything you do, which also means they're a great place to start when it comes to environmentally friendly processes. If you focus your attention on the machines you use most, you'll make plenty of progress without having to change every little thing.

Here are a few ideas to get you started!

  • #1: Call in the pros.

If your printers and copiers are acting up, the best--and greenest--thing you can do is call a certified technician. Tech experts will know exactly what to do in order to make sure your machines don't become a strain on you or the environment.

  • #2: Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Try using recycled printing paper and printing on both sides to limit your environmental impact. On top of that, you can find certain organizations in your area that will help recycle ink and toner cartridges--and remember to reuse office supplies whenever possible.

  • #3: Print smarter.

When you print documents, be sure to use the most economical fonts possible. This seems like a small change, but it can have a big impact--and Mother Nature will thank you. Plus, when you make copies of the document later, you'll use less ink!

  • #4: Consider upgrading.

Older printers and copiers weren't designed with the environment in mind like today's models. If you feel like your office equipment is dragging you down, it might be time for an upgrade.
