Going green continues to be a growing trend amongst businesses, and owners are learning the green savings and benefits available to them.
Consider these facts from The National Arbor Day Foundation and the American Forest & Paper Association:
- One tree makes 16.67 reams of copy paper or 8,333.3 sheets
- One ton of copy paper uses 24 trees
- Every ton of paper recovered saves 3.3 cubicyards of landfill space
In the United States, the average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of copy paper a year. That means the average small business office, of approximately 10 employees, use 20 trees or approximately $679.56 worth of paper a year.
As companies shift billing operations to a paperless strategy, they not only improve efficiency and reduce costs, they significantly reduce their environmental footprint. Even bills printed on recycled paper strain natural resources and eventually clog already overburdened landfills.
Electronic billing is another way to reduce paper consumption and save money. Benefits associated with e-billing are reducing the money spent on paper, envelopes, and postage, and your invoices are delivered instantaneously with no mailing delay.
Paperless billing can play a major role in meeting corporate sustainability goals and achieving a win for the environment. It’s time to turn off paper and do our part to go green while knowing that by having your bills delivered electronically and paying them online you’re saving money and your time, while being environmentally responsible.
