How a Paperless Office Positively Impacts Our Planet

Whether or not you realize it, going paperless can have a huge positive impact on our planet. In fact, going green and going paperless go hand in hand! Here are some of the major advantages of making your office paperless (and going green as a result).

Going paperless benefits our planet!

Everyone is More Efficient

Going paperless allows for a much higher degree of efficiency in your office. Instead of combing through file folders looking for a specific record, you can easily search and access them on your network without ever leaving your desk. Beyond the ease of locating documents, they will also be more secure than ever thanks to network security protocols like password protected documents. Employees will be able to track their workload from their computers, instead of fumbling through emails and to-do lists, and access all of the necessary applications and files at once as well.

Going Green Helps the Planet

Transitioning to a paperless office can have an absolutely gigantic impact on the planet. Think of all of the paper that your office uses in a week, combined with all of the toner or ink cartridges, the truck that it takes to deliver those supplies, and all of the manufacturing that goes into them. We are currently living in a time where natural resources are being consumed faster than they are being fostered and replaced. So what can we do to prevent running out and being a paperless society out of necessity? Going green!


Beyond the harvesting of natural resources, the production of paper (yes, even the recycling of paper) involves chemicals and wastes that are eventually put back into the earth through the streams, rivers, and oceans. The fresh water supply takes a small hit every time you open another case of paper, and many environmental disasters have occurred as a result of our huge need for paper. By completely stopping your office’s use of paper and going green, you can save a ton of money, increase your productivity, and literally save the world.
