Save paper, save toner!

  • It costs $0.058 for black/white copies and $0.32 for colour copies
  • That includes the cost of paper for letter size only
  • If the University asked everyone to change their default to print in black and white and double sided as the norm and tick colour and single only as needed the savings would be drastic
  • It costs 465.5% more to print in colour; double-sided printing would cut paper costs in half
  • I have initiated this in the Anatomy lab and reduced our paper and toner consumption
  • Campus wide, the savings would really add up and it is easy to change your printing default
