  • 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?

    the easiest way would be if the default printer settings were for 2 sided versus 1 sided printing. People would have to actively choose one sided. Right now it is the opposite so many times things just print one sided unless I think to change it before I click print. Easy to miss that way. If it defaulted everyone could achieve this objective.
