No more paper please.
Do you know how much paper we are using every day?
Small notes, documents, the daily newspaper is just one thing, but how about all the advertisement: leaflets,
flyer, receipts, packaging and wrapping which directly find its way to the rubbish? Mostly it is more annoying
As I have spent these past months in South-East Asia I found out more about the problems within the paper
industry, especially in Indonesia. As a consequence I declared myself to save paper whenever possible.
A lot of people have traded their cellphone for a smartphone lately. We are checking it regularly anyway, why
not taking our notes there? Besides is it really necessary to print out every receipt, the monthly statement of
account, or all the other documents when the trend is towards digitizing everything?
