Welcome to our paperless office!

Our office strives daily to operate as greenly as possible. Here are just a few reasons why we have minimized our paper use.

  • 42% of the industrial wood harvest is used to make paper.
  • Paper accounts for 25% of landfill waste (and one third of municipal landfill waste).
  • 28% of paper produced is copy or print paper, which is reponsibe for 20 million metric tons of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere
  • If the United States cut office paper use by just 10% it would prevent the emission of 1.6 million tons of greenhouse gases — the equivalent of taking 280,000 cars off the road.
  • The pulp and paper industry is the third largest contributor to global emmisions, which does not include the emissions from the logging process or shipping of the final product.
  • We use recycled paper. According to RecycleWorks.org, “20 cases of 100% recycled paper saves 17 trees, 390 gallons of oil, 7,000 gallons of water and 4,100 kwh of energy … [and] also eliminates 60 pounds of air-polluting emissions and saves eight cubic feet of landfill space.”
