There are lots of advantages to going paperless – the obvious one being the effect you’ll have on the environment.
It’s not just paper waste you’ll be reducing, though.
- Your printer will get much less use, leading to a longer useful life for the printer, and greatly reduced consumption of ink/toner. (Did you know that 85% of used print cartridges are NOT recycled? And in the UK, around 65 million are sold annually, so that’s 55 million lumps of plastic going into landfill EVERY YEAR!)
- You won’t need to keep buying files or boxes to store all the paperwork.
- If you use Cloud storage for your documents, you can access them (and share them) from anywhere – meaning fewer car journeys to pick up or drop off paperwork.
