Create A ‘Save Paper’ Campaign

Is your office a forest of filing cabinets? Do important documents go missing in action? Then it’s time to become a ‘Save Paper’ business.

It’s “E-asy” – Economical, Environmental and Efficient

Start a paper reduction campaign in your business and:

  • Save time and money by using staff and paper more efficiently.
  • Help the environment by reducing the amount of paper waste that ends up in landfill.
  • Motivate your employees to become part of the change.

Sound like a plan? Here are some tips to get you on your way:

1. Get approval and support for your campaign

  • From the powers that be and your colleagues. If possible, get your boss or head of department to take the lead.

2. Plan your campaign

  • Develop an office printing policy.
  • Ask for volunteers or set up a working group. Involve people from all levels of the company.
  • Establish a baseline for measuring the success of your campaign – conduct a waste assessment.
  • Get ideas from our top 10 ‘Save Paper’ tips and decide which tips you want to implement.

3. Launch your campaign

  • Use the tips in our ‘Save Paper’ campaign launch section to get your colleagues on board.
  • It’s important to try and involve everyone in the business.

4. Monitor your progress
