Few months ago, I had attended a national conference and towards the close of the event, we all were given 3pages of feedback form, I then thought about the over 200 people in the hall as though it was my pocket! Only for me to turn back, I saw that they came prepared with printer cartridges and packs of A4 papers.
I shook my head and with my pen I quickly wrote in the suggestion box the names of some web application that would help them with their survey going forward which would be faster and more affordable.
So think again, must you hand down that customer a hand book in the name of receipt,
how about you asked if they wanted an e-copy? X.
You are having a monthly staff meeting with 5 or more number of employees and you decide they must get a paper copy of the agenda... No now! Simply exchange or share documents electronically. It may appear fancy but all the cost and wastages are affecting your business finances.
Just so you know, statistics has it that the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper within a year and also that 50% of the waste of businesses is composed of paper.
Now that you know, will you ask yourself, "Do I really need a printed copy?" before you press that button.
Be kind to the company's purse and the planet by applying this sustainable tip? Just say "I". Yours, Sustainable Business Expert!
