1 day to Earth Day! Green tip #10: Replace your file cabinet with a tree

April 21, 2010

Use digital storage solutions to cut paper and reduce clutter. According to Office Depot, one 100 Megabyte zip drive can store the contents of a four-drawer filing cabinet, and one CD-Rom can hold nearly a roomful of paper! Many businesses still use hundreds of file boxes for all their information, creating more paper waste, and information is hard to file, organize, and retrieve.

Once you scan and convert your files into digital format, the paper documents can be shredded and recycled. Not only have you reduced your impact on the environment, you and your colleagues have instant access to your archived files. Information at your fingertips! Digital documents can save hundreds of trees per year for your company. And wouldn't that tree look pretty in the corner of your office instead of your filing cabinet?
