Welcome to 3R Friday
A weekly series of simple tips geared toward helping you darken your shade of green. Easily.
Reduce: Reduce your printing waste
- Print in draft
- Print in black and white. Print in color only when you need too.
- Print double sided (copy double sided too)
- Don't print (before you hit print make sure you need to. Consider saving the file to your computer instead of printing)
- Don't forget to recycle your used cartridges
Most of the time I use a pencil to label my file folders so that I can erase the label when I am done. When I do label with something more permanent I still reuse the folders by turning them "inside out" and relabel. I do this both at work and at home.
Recycle: Recycle movie tickets by printing them instead of buying them.
This was a great tip that Lisa at Retro Housewife recently shared. Whenever you are going to go to a movie or any other such event, opt to print the ticket yourself at home instead of getting a "real" ticket. This way you can recycle the ticket when you are done with it.
You can also print your ticket in draft and on the backside of a "scrap" paper!
Hope you have found these tips helpful. Feel free to share your tips with me.
Have a happy Green weekend and Easter!
