Green IT is all about reducing both costs and organisation on the environment.
Printing is probably the easiest was to achieve this goal of both reducing costs and our effect on the planet.
We print vast amounts of copy. Most of this paper and ink is used once and then thrown away. A large proportion is not even used once but wasted. We are talking about millions of dollars in waste and forests of trees being needlessly cut down.
There is a much bigger picture too. The cost of running a printer is counted in ink/toner and paper, but consider the energy required by the printer every time it is used. Consider the wear on the hardware. Then consider the environmental cost of producing the ink. The power needed to manufacture the ink, the cartridge, the transportation, packaging etc.
Now consider the energy required to produce paper. It takes vast amounts of energy to cut the tree down, pulp it, produce sheets, then transport it, package, it goes on and on. Also consider the chemicals used in the production of paper. It is a huge industry and none of it is doing your budget or the environment any favours.
For these reasons we must reduce the amount of printed material we generate each and every day. Both your budget and the environment will benefit if you do so, and it is easy to do with Print Manager Plus is a green IT product designed to put you in 100% control of the printing that goes on within your organisation.
