We’re all hippies. We all want to save the planet, have world peace and solve world hunger. These are big issues, but we can have some small impact on each. How? Being nice to people will have a knock-on effect – BAM! World peace; don’t order or buy to much food when you shop or go out – BAM! Leaving food for others. But what about saving the planet? Here I want to share some ideas on how to use less paper, and as paper comes from trees, save more trees, and what do trees do? Well, that’s a question for a tree person, but they are important.
Going paperless sounds easy. After all, how much paper do you actually use at home or at work? It can’t be that much, right? Wrong. You use paper much, much more than you realise. There’s bills that come in, the shopping list you’ve jotted down, manuals on how to work your TV and DVD, receipts (how I loathe paper receipts), contracts and invoices, and the list goes on.
Here, then, are 3 ways that you can start to use today to cut down on the amount of paper you have laying around in the kitchen, on your desk and buried in a filing cabinet.
