American Business Worlds Worst Addiction- Paper
January 31, 2008
Today, it’s entirely possible to keep a business document electronic throughout its entire life cycle. But if this is true, why then, are the average U.S workers printing more than a tree's worth per year?
The answer, as Renee Thomas, Director of Field Marketing, Esker, states in this TMCnet article, is an addiction to paper.
Just like a smoker who's addicted to cigarettes, Thomas explains, office workers seem to be addicted to hitting the print button.
And just as smoking has harmful effects on the smoker and those around them, this paper addiction is harming the environment for all. Damages extend from deforestation concerns, to green house emissions, waste, energy and water concerns.
