An extraordinary amount of paper and ink is used when printing out entire pages of websites, articles, emails or other electronic material. It is common knowledge that producing paper takes a tremendous toll on our environment. The consequences of paper waste are well known and can be limited. It not only reduces the environmental impact but cuts down university costs, including energy consumption.
In addition to using recycled paper, there is mandated double-sided printing in the Sawyer Computing Center.
In an effort to reduce its carbon footprint and paper consumption, Suffolk University is rolling out "Operation: Paper Cut" beginning in Fall 2013. The initiative will provide a printing allotment of 500 pages per semester to each student enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Sawyer Business School. Check out the video below.
