Millions of Trees are being cut down worldwide, on daily basis, to produce Papers. This is very alarming for the Environment.
Now to save Money and Environment, so many Individuals, Groups, Organizations and Countries are trying to cut their Paper Consumption Cost in different fields and heading towards Paperless Environment and Paper Alternatives Environment. But they have a very slow pace, because a substantial Cost of Technology Change is involved from Individual Level to Country Level that is not easily affordable for every country particularly Developing and Least Developed Countries.
So, till the complete Paperless / Paper Alternative Approach, ‘Customized Paper Consumption Approach’ is required that can save Millions of Funds and Millions of Trees all over the World. Following 5 Practices of this unique approach can be followed:
Resizing of Paper According to Text Size
Use the paper for printing according to the size of text / lines of text, to avoid wastage. For example for a few lines of text, there is no need to use A4 Size. Instead of keeping A4 Size only, always keep papers in different sizes and use them according to the requirement. For Bulk Printing, this process can be automated, so that Printer can automatically cut down the sheet upon reaching of text end and can start printing for the next document / page. You must have seen different letters, documents, circulars and etc., having only few lines of text on a whole A4 Size Page.
Resizing of Margins
Use the four margins i.e. Left, Right, Top and Bottom as 0.5 Inches or lesser, instead of 1 Inch or more.
Photocopying Micro Size
Produce Micro Size copies of the Originals, on Half of A4 Size OR Smaller, according to the need.
Reuse all kind of envelopes by adding / printing different blocks for sender / receiver addresses on both sides of envelopes so that a receiving person can reuse the same envelope for sending it to another person, just cutting the previous sender / receiver address and using / writing the another block for next consignment.
Printing on Both Sides
If the purpose has been served of a paper / document and it is no more required. So its second side can be used for printing. The same strategy can also be adopted for Bulk Printing.
I sincerely hope that above Idea / Approach will be further analyzed by the concerned, for further fruitful results, in shape of saving of Millions of Funds along with more Greener World.
