Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics; Apologies to Mark Twain

Email is cheap and uses no natural resources:

Over 200 million items of e-waste are thrown away each year in the US*
70% of the toxic waste in US landfills comes from e-waste
Burning a CD produces 4 x as much CO-2 as printing a single annual report**

* US Environmental Protection Agency

Printing wastes paper:

4,000,00 trees are planted daily in the US*
Only 18% of electronic waste is recycled annually vs. 57% of paper recycled in 2008
There are 12,000,000 more acres of US forestland today than 20 years ago**

*Forest- American Forest & Paper Association

The printing industry has been much more committed to total environmental concerns that the tech industry- smart choices of printing vs. email can make a major difference for your and the environment. Consider printing instead.
