Sometimes we hear the advocacy of going paper-less, every correspondence will be in soft-copy.
Without researching much into the matter, the topic just came to me while thinking of posters and hard copy media that really make a difference. Examples would be table calendars, or an office calendar display, signs and message-boards, etc.
Personally, I love being able to write on a hard copy of what I'm reading, being able to highlight and to fold the pages of a book. A book would also be easier to navigate in areas where there's no internet connection for example, and would not need batteries to be able to be read.
The costs of a computer to the environment, in producing heat, and consuming electricity, isn't that as much as costly as the cost of paper to the environment?
Going completely paper-less is a nightmare for me. My suggestion would be, for more communication to be short and precise instead of being verbose and much too long; this way, there will be less paper used.
