At home and at office we use paper without even thinking. Whether we want to jot down a phone number, some expenses, meeting notes or want to save important documents like agreements, documentations or user forms, papers seem quintessential to our way of functioning. This puts lots of strain on the environment. Of course newspapers and magazines, and even packaging use thousands times more paper than what we use at home and office, but still, we should constantly think of ways to preserve our envoironment.
Besides, it’s better to process documents digitally as then they are easier to manage and process, and even easier to send from one part of the world to another.
