This week, in the name of helping out the environment we will be trying out a paperless office. What does this mean? Basically, trying to cut out printing out documents and making notes on the computer rather than on paper (however after a bit of a debate we’ve decided that we would still like to keep our loo roll, in case you were wondering). Although we don’t get through a lot of paper in the office during a normal week, we thought it would be a neat idea to try and cut it out completely (or as much as possible) for a whole week and see how we get on. It might be a bit of a challenge, especially cutting out use of the old pen and paper, but hopefully it will help us explore the many alternatives that are at our fingertips nowadays!
We’ll keep you up to date this week with how we get on, as well as looking into eco-friendly alternatives to your average sheet of paper. So, who will slip up first? Who can’t give up paper and why? Who is a green god/goddess and uses the least? You shall find out by the end of the week!
If you’re inspired by our attempt at a paper free week, then feel free to join in at home or at work too and let us know how you get on. The more the merrier! Or, if you know that you really, really can’t give up paper for a week then you can help us save trees another way and sign up to play WeForest! You can sign up here http://bit.ly/weforest
