Conserving Paper by Signing up for e-Statements on Earth Day

April 22nd is Earth Day!  Part of Earth Day is reducing the use of our earth day estatementsprecious 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?
