The Emerald Isle

Imagine flying over the country of Ireland and seeing it covered by office paper – the WHOLE Emerald Isle covered in white paper. Or looking down on the state of Florida and seeing over half of it covered by paper. That’s how much office paper is used every year (check my conservative math below). In two years we’ll have all of Florida covered…in ten years Texas, or France.

That’s a lot of paper.

AXIAR Green, Paper Saving Software, reduces the amount of paper your office consumes. You can make a difference by contacting us to learn more about saving paper by printing intelligently in your office. We’ve got experience saving paper and lots of ideas that can help any office save paper.

And if saving the Emerald Isle from a blanket of paper isn’t motivating you, we can save you a lot of money, too. Either way we’ll get you green.

*The Math:
IDC's 2009 Printer and MFP Forecasts estimated that the number of printed pages was 1.5 trillion pages in 2008…so let’s go ahead and cut that estimate down since we’re at 2010 and we’re not at the same employment levels, let’s assume 1.4 trillion sheets are consumed per year. Let’s be conservative and figure 8.5 inches by 11 inches is the size, giving us .65 square feet per sheet.
1.4 trillion, times .65 feet, converted to square miles is about 32,600 square miles. Ireland is about 32,500 square miles.
