We are entering a point in our lives where we all need to start to become environmentally aware. Scientist tell us that within the next 50 years we will run out of fossil fuels and environmental experts are always keeping an eye on the now depleting population of the worlds forests and trees.Entire rainforests are cut down to make lumber for construction and paper for schools, office buildings and simple everyday use. As Americans we use about 70 million tons of paper every year. On average there are 2 billion books, 350 million magazines and 24 billion newspapers published. It is more important now than ever that we try and make a change in the amount of paper we use, recycling efforts, and maybe even the challenging but reward “paper-free” environment. In order to try and do our part in this time of much needed environmental awareness, Puerto-Penasco.com is now going complete paper-free in all of our offices. It wasn’t an overnight transition and definitely required effort by all employees, but we have officially converted to paper-free. All of our files are now digital and we try and do our best to minimize any paper that is used in the office. If any paper is used in the office for meetings, or specific purposes we pay close attention that we recycle it correctly and dispose of it correctly. Converting most of our files to digital format is has also allowed for better organization throughout the office. Instead of misplacing a paper it is simply in a folder on of our computers. To be sure that all of our files are safe we have also backed our digital files onto external hard drives. We recommend that if you’re going for the paper free office, you should also back up your files to be secure. Going paper free may not be the best option for you at the moment, but keep it in mind. Don’t have the mentality that you going paper free won’t change anything in the grand scheme of things, because you never know you may set off a trend and influence more people to adopt the paper free lifestyle. Before it’s too late and the forests are all gone lets conserve our paper and make sure that there is still paper to recycle in 50 years from now.
