Businesses and individuals across the country are looking for ways to cut costs during these challenging economic times.  With small business resources strained most look to cut the most visible expenses: travel, operating expenses, and so forth.   

One path to cost reduction is looking at the underlying, seemingly unconscious processes and habits that we do daily.  Companies interested in reducing cost and building business sustainability are taking the challenge to reduce their use of paper. 
In our sustainability consulting, we encourage clients to identify all the activities in their business that utilize paper.  The obvious comes to mind like printers, copiers, mail, collateral, but dig deep here and explore other areas of your business. 
  • How much paper do you use for events, trade shows, invoicing, literature, packaging, shipping materials?

  • What about the kitchen areas and bathrooms?  Remember, it's not just paper but paper products. 

  • Consult with people in other departments and get a clear picture of the paper they are using, where it is coming from, when they are using it, and how they are using it.

  • You might want to talk to your purchasing department and learn more about how much you are spending on your paper products.
