April 22nd is Earth Day! Part of Earth Day is reducing the use of our precious natural resources. A prime example is trees as we all use a lot of paper. Around the world humans use about 1 million tons of paper a day. Here are some tips to save paper:
- Think before you print – Do you really have to print that?
- Use both sides – A piece of paper has two sides, so double its use!
- Recycle – paper is very reusable so recycle and use recycled paper
- Technology – email, scanners, and other devices allow you to share without printing
Did you know that every ton of recyled paper saves about 17 trees?
Technology has come a long way and has allowed you to avoid getting your financial statements in the mail. Now that e-statements are available, you can save paper that way too. e-Statements have many features including:
