1. Choose ecologically meaningful paper

1. Choose ecologically meaningful paper

Not only is paper by far the biggest cost factor in terms of printing, it is also of great importance in terms of environmental impact. Anyone who wants to take nature into consideration should switch to environmentally friendly paper in any case.

The use of recyclable paper is fully in the spirit of sustainability. Thus, the printing paper is almost exclusively made from waste paper.

Visually, however, there is no noticeable difference compared to conventional paper.

2. Take advantage of pressure surface optimally

2. Take advantage of pressure surface optimally

In many cases, the virtual template is transferred to the printing device when printing in full size, which is particularly problematic for documents with little text.

Here users should worry about whether the open spaces can not be removed from the print template or filled with text.

Furthermore, depending on the application, it may also be useful to print multiple pages on a single sheet of paper – e.g. for presentation slides.

3. Print on both sides

3. Print on both sides

Normally, documents are only printed on one side in everyday life, so that the available area of a sheet of paper is in principle used only fifty percent. However, those who print on both sides of their documents not only protect the environment sustainably, but can also save around half of the purchased printing paper at the same time.

In this way, in addition to nature benefits your own wallet.

4. Use the correct paper

4. Use the correct paper

Paper is available on the market in many different variations, with the weight per surface being used as the qualitative characteristic.

In general, normal printed matter such as handouts, cover letters etc. should be made with paper that has a value of 80 gsm. Only for particularly high-quality printed products such as certificates, photos or invitation cards should be used to paper with more than 100 g / sqm.

5. Save printer ink or toner

5. Save printer ink or toner

The consumption of printer ink or toner represents a significant burden on the environment and should therefore be reduced as much as possible.

Especially suitable for this purpose is the use of so-called draft mode in Microsoft Office and other Office packages. This is a setting that causes the printer to use only a minimum of ink or toner.

The draft mode is especially useful if the printed documents do not have to be of high quality.

6. The right disposal

Toner cartridges and ink cartridges contain not only scraps of material and plastic, but also a range of electronic components.

In order for these raw materials to be recycled in the course of recycling, it is important to properly dispose of toner cartridges.

Old toner and ink cartridges can be disposed of environmentally friendly through recycling centers or dealers for printing supplies.

7. Switch off printer when not in use

7. Switch off printer when not in use

Printers consume a large amount of power during both active and standby modes.

In order not to unnecessarily burden the natural resources, pressure equipment should be turned off when not in use.

For longer service life, it is recommended to completely disconnect the device from the mains, as even switched off devices with connected mains plug consume energy.

Especially in times of digitization, it is not always necessary to print documents.

In the course of environmental protection, users should carefully consider whether, for example, an e-mail must be printed on paper or whether it can not remain in digital form.

Reducing the amount of printed matter is still one of the best ways to sustainably protect the environment.

The conclusion:

Overall, it quickly becomes clear that the environment can already be effectively saved with simple tips. However, it is not only nature that benefits from the measures, but also, as a rule, one’s own budget.
