Go Green to Save Green: Save Money and the Environment with Sustainable Printing

What if there was a way to help the environment and save money at the same time? Surprisingly, there are actually several ways to help the environment and save money, and Imperial Copy Products has all the answers!

After more than five decades of helping businesses succeed, we know a thing or two about sustainability and affordability. And with Earth Day right around the corner, here are several ways your business can help both the planet and your pocketbook.

  • Utilizing double-sided printing. Double-sided (or duplex) printing is an excellent way to reduce your paper usage. For example, the average office worker uses 1.5 pounds of paper a day. Imagine being able to seamlessly cut that average in half. This goal is easily achieved using any number of our Kyocera multifunction and laser printers. Duplex printing has never been easier!
  • Printing judiciously. Let’s face it. Overprinting is an easy mistake to make. After all, it’s better to be over-prepared than under-prepared. However, that mindset can often lead to huge amounts of waste. Minimizing waste saves paper – both the white and the green kind. Next time, implore your workers (and yourself) to think twice before printing all those pages.
  • Digitizing your printing systems. This step is vital to going green, and also adds massive amounts of convenience to your workflow. Kyocera multifunction printers will help you take your business into the age of lightning-fast technology. Rather than printing those corporate manuals, try scanning and emailing them. Now you’re saving money and time, all while helping the environment.
  • Greening your technology. Although it is everyone’s responsibility to help the environment, it never hurts to have support from the very products you use. Choosing office products with “green” features will help you save money and the environment. Some machines also come equipped with advanced sleep modes that allow for less energy consumption than regular sleep modes. Imperial Copy Products can help guide your decision-making to help you choose products that are both energy efficient and affordable.
  • Maintaining responsibly. Properly maintained equipment will always run more efficiently and take up fewer resources. Make sure you partner with an office equipment dealer that provides a good service and maintenance contract so that your hardware will be properly taken care of and will run efficiently for as long as possible. Imperial Copy Products is committed to providing excellent service and maintenance, so you can focus on your business.
  • Recycling. Recycling has become a mainstay in our personal lives. However, oftentimes recycling is ignored in the workplace. Put secure recycling bins near your printers as a visual reminder for you and your employees. Also, remember that you can recycle more than just paper. For example, Kyocera offers toner cartridge recycling. These and other services can maximize your green efforts.

Going green is more affordable than ever! In fact, with the expertise from Imperial Copy Products, going green can even increase profitability.
