GreenPrint To Pay the Fortune 500 To Go Green
June 14, 2007
GreenPrint has a plan.
They’re giving away their software.
GreenPrint’s software is designed to eliminate unwanted pages saving paper, ink, money, and millions of trees. You know, those blank pages that litter the garbage and recycle bins around the printer? The ones which print out with only a URL and a banner ad and footnote?
The deal is that GreenPrint will give away its software in exchange for half the savings that companies will reap by using the solution. The offer is available to companies with over 1,000 PC users.
The potential is massive.
According to the release announcing this initiative:
According to studies released by Citigroup and Lexmark, wasted pages account for as much as 25 percent of all printed material and cost the Fortune 500 over $1 billion a year. Gartner Research estimates 1 percent to 3 percent of Fortune 500 revenues are spent on printing costs annually, and those costs are increasing every year.
Furthermore, according to studies by UNESCO and Conservatree, Fortune 500 printer waste also results in over two million additional trees being harvested annually.
GreenPrint also offers a font called EverGreen, which reduces paper use by as much as 20% while also saving ink and toner.
According to the company, the font allows more words to fit on a page and does so while not compromising readability. Compared with common fonts such as Arial, Times New Roman and Helvetica, GreenPrint says that EverGreen reduces paper use by up to 15–20%.
The “Get Paid to Go Green” program will run through the end of September.
