Going Paperless Saves Money

In a recent article titled, “Going Paperless: A Journey Worth Taking,” Forbes states that, “We’ve been talking about the paperless office literally for decades, but the average office worker still uses some 10,000 sheets of paper a year. According to The Paperless Project (via Medium), American corporations spend over $120 billion on printed forms, most of which become outdated within three months.”

Going Paperless Improves Organization

Switching to paperless saves on physical storage space and streamlines the background screening process, allowing you to easily and quickly access information and documents all in one place with a click of a computer key. It also “improves the security of your data and confidential information,” and “protects documents from getting lost or, worse, destroyed,” according to Forbes.

Going Paperless Produces Less Waste

According to a report by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), most municipal solid waste consists of paper and paperboard (cardboard) materials, including corrugated boxes and office paper. Going paperless provides a digital solution to the excess printing, storing, and disposal of these nondurable goods.

Going Paperless is Good for the Environment

The production of paper leads to deforestation around the world and uses a significant amount of energy and water. It also requires chemicals to bleach and break down wood pulp that can potentially harm the environment. Additionally, studies show that paper mills have been found to exceed regulatory guidelines for air pollution, which increases carbon emissions and affects human health.
