More informations about this webinar

Webinar Description 

TechSoup's Green Technology program is encouraging nonprofits and other social benefit organizations to reduce their paper consumption in five specific ways:

  1. Complete a paper usage assessment of your organization and communicate results to staff.
  2. Change printer and copier settings and habits
  3. Create, edit, communicate and store documents electronically
  4. Distribute annual reports and marketing collateral in PDFs or eBooks.
  5. Budget for and start buying recycled content paper

This webinar illustrates why it is important to make each of these five changes and our speakers will answer your questions and help you overcome the hurdles to making those changes in your organization.
