How Much Paper Do You Waste

Are you the kinds who start thinking of a solution as soon as they come to know of a problem? Well, you are precisely the one who make the world a better place. Chances are there that you may not be a revolutionary or a ‘change maker’, but more importantly; what is that we need to change?

As the World Environment Day, 5th June, comes closer, we try to pull together some facts which concern us and we feel, need to be changed. The 2012 theme for World Environment Day is ‘Green Economy: Does it include you?’. A Green Economy as the United Nations Environment Programme describes, is one whose growth in income and employment is driven by public and private investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
Since we are an online invoicing and billing solution provider, we thought of quantifying what all you will save annually based on the number of invoices you process. It includes the paper used to print the invoice, the envelope and additional documents (if any).

If you send online invoices instead of printing 300 of them, you will save: 

  • 900 sheets of paper which means, 0 trees are cut
  • Enough fuel to travel 8 miles

If you send online invoices instead of printing 600 of them, you will save:  

  • 1,800 sheets of paper which means, 0 trees are cut
  • Enough fuel to travel 16 miles

If you send online invoices instead of printing 1000 of them, you will save: 

  • 3,000 sheets of paper which means, 0 trees are cut
  • Enough fuel to travel 27 miles

If you send online invoices instead of printing 5000 of them, you will save:  

  • 15,000 sheets of paper which means, 0 trees are cut
  • Enough fuel to travel 133 miles

On a broader perspective, online invoicing is a lot more than just saving paper. You save time, you save money (which we all love too) and you are a lot more organized too. But  none of it can compensate or equate with the positive impact one can make on the environment simply by switching over to online Invoicing.

From cribbers, lets be the change makers this time.
