June Environment Minute - Think Before You Print
Reducing printing can help the environment by reducing the impact of paper, ink, and toner on the environment. The production of one ton of paper can require 12 to 24 trees, which creates greenhouse gas emissions and can lead to deforestation. Paper production also uses a lot of water, and some chemicals used in the process can contaminate water supplies and harm aquatic life.
