1 – Using QR Codes more, and business cards less
Life Green Group management and sales teams are now relying more on QR codes and QR code scanners; therefore we print fewer business cards. This not only saves us money but make us feel better the amount of paper we are printing.
Technology offers us many solutions to use less paper
3 – Clients reports are done online
Our Area Managers use project management software to report to clients online.
4 – Invoicing and quoting are online
All quotes and invoices are emailed digitally rather than by snail mail.
5 – Submitting tenders online
Life Landscapes Installations and maintenance are starting to notice that clients are asking for us to submit tenders online This is not only stops us printing but saves us petrol, time and money.
Rather submit tenders online
6 – Using iPads for digital reports
Life Indoors is getting iPad savvy! The Life Indoors managers will be using iPads instead of clipboards to submit their site audits.
When we do have to print then this is what we encourage our employees to do the following:
7 – Printing double-sided
So you only use half the amount of paper!
An IPad is a great alternative
8 – Grayscale Printing
This means you use less ink so we don’t have to replaces ink cartridges. Greyscaling means you only use ink from the black ink cartridge.
9 – Only printing Current Page
Firstly, we only print when absolute necessary but instead of printing the entire email we just select the option to print Current Page.
10 – Composting shredded paper
There is use for your old paper – composting
