The Cost of Printing on the Environment

Posted by Bianca Beck on Oct 3, 2018 1:30:00 PM

Written by Bianca Beck in collaboration with Sarah Fernandes (Sustainability Officer at Green Office)

Our everyday printing activities, whether personal or business related, have a significant impact on the environment, which is not usually considered as we mindlessly click the “print” command.  The consumables required for printing i.e. paper and printer cartridges, and the manufacturing and disposal thereof, are responsible for irreparable damage to the natural environment.

South Africa has officially made the top 20 of the world’s worst plastic polluters – we are ranked at number 11, worse than India, and the entire United States.

14 Factors to Choosing the Right Office Printer

Posted by Bianca Beck on Aug 1, 2018 3:00:00 PM

All businesses use office printers, and few really know which printer to purchase that will cater to their requirements.

Not all printers print documents of the same quality, not all printers can perform the same jobs and have the same functions. Choosing the right printer is pretty much as complex a purchase as getting a computer, laptop or smartphone.

Will the printer industry eventually die?

I think most people will answer the above question with an unequivocal “of course it will die”, and this answer is no doubt based on the rapidity at which digital accessibility is growing (not to mention how happy our youth are on their screens!).

Perhaps then the question should be “how quickly” will it die?
