Printing Your Readings Now Slightly Less Damaging to The Environment
Written by Bwog Staff
It’s an old trick that saves both trees and money: printing flyers and rough drafts on already-used paper (by feeding the blank side in). Now, CUIT and campus group Green Umbrella have brought that technique to campus printers, converting one of the printers in Mudd’s Engineering Terrace to used paper.
According to Green Umbrella’s Hannah Perls, the project began in April, and “the one-sided paper will be collected with the help of CUIT, SEEJ and Eco Reps as well as volunteers from other Umbrella organizations.” They are particularly hoping that campus groups will use the printer for flyering, “to reduce paper waste on campus.” As for expansion, Perls said, “We would definitely love to either expand or move the printer to a more high-traffic area if the printer sees a lot of activity.”
