  • Reflection Question
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    Choosing two sided printing is an easy change to make.  We do have some printers that are not capable of two sided printing.  It would be a good idea to check and see if those could be upgraded to increase efficiency.
