Not only is using mass amounts of paper not environmentally sustainable, it's just plain expensive. C'mon man.
Some people will honestly look at this post and think to themselves the same thing; c'mon man, are we really writing / reading about this? And, sadly yes we are. Companies, especially larger ones, can be incredibly slow to adapt and adopt new policy. After working in a law firm I saw this first hand as all the lawyers were still surprisingly doing research in books from the 70's. Um, hello, you have a computer right at your desk right? This sort of thing happens everywhere in companies of all shapes and sizes; memos, flyers, calendars, TPS reports. Don't be a Lumbergh, ditch the old model and go paperless. It's easier than you think.

"Running a business requires an endless stream of internal communication.  Access to copies of reports, memos and other major documents are important for employees, but offices waste countless reams of paper printing off documents. These practices can drive up operating costs for businesses, reduce raises for employees and contribute to deforestation and worldwide environmental damage. Luckily, there are many ways for business owners and office managers like you to reduce paper waste in your office."
