Last week we talked about some of the ways Xerox supports the Earth Day movement, see the article “Tips for Embracing Sustainability on Earth Day 2018”. Today, April 27, is Arbor Day. Arbor is the Latin word for tree. In celebration of tress and Arbor Day let me tell you about the PrintReLeaf program and the Xerox Print Awareness Tool to help you save a tree or two.
There is a new opportunity for Managed Print Services (MPS) participants. If you are a Xerox Managed Print Services customer you now have the opportunity to help with reforestation through the partnership between Xerox and PrintReleaf. PrintReleaf uses paper usage reports to determine the number of trees needed to reforest for the usage. The trees are planted in geographic areas of need. MPS participants can add PrintReleaf to their MPS contract. Read more about this opportunity in the press release and see if it will help you meet your sustainability goals.
Let me remind you of another wonderful tool that will help you print and use paper more efficiently and maybe save a tree or two along the way. The tool is the Xerox Print Awareness Tool which is a personal desktop interface that will help you and your co-workers improve your print behavior. Each individual can have their own dashboard that will help you see your print usage, compare your usage to goals and offer sustainability tips and suggestions on how to improve your print efficiency.
Please take a look at the following video that explains this great tool better than I can.
As you saw in the video the Xerox Print Awareness Tool gives you real-time information on how your print behavior will impact your company financially and how it will impact the environment. The tool uses gamification techniques to engage users and encourage users to change their printing behavior to support environmental sustainability efforts and cost cutting efforts. Results have shown that the tool cuts print volumes by 20% and increases duplex or two-sided printing by 60%. Cha-ching!!
So should you use the tool? Well consider using the Xerox Print Awareness Tool if you want to:
- Make better printing choices
- See how much you are saving each month on your personal desktop dashboard
- Learn new methods to improve print efficiencies
- Improve operational costs and productivity
To investigate the Xerox Print Awareness Tool take a look at the brochure for the tool or navigate to the webpage about the tool. You can also call Xerox at 1-800-275-9376 x 947 or use the contact form for additional information.
Please enjoy your Arbor Day and do your part to save a tree or plant a new one. The earth and our future generations will thank you.
