      I'm trying to do a project based on the ways to cut down the usage of paper and to recycle paper waste. Its is actually harmful to the environment. I'm the follower of minimalism and ecofriendly methods.
      By the way I'm looking for audio visual rentals in Toronto area for a Birthday party. We are celebrating my Mother's Birthday.One of my friends suggested about audiovisualrentals Toronto.
      Please put forward your suggestions regarding this.
      Thanks in advance
      Oh, I didn’t realize that spammers were interested in the topic.

        Not a very efficient spammer - It took 2 days to get your spam link posted!
        You need to work on your spamming methodology.

            Please, do tell how paper is harmful to the environment. We would love to know so we can change our ways. And the computer you use to post on this forum has no environmental impact, I suppose?

              Hello Hazel,

              I suggest you read Gordo's post. ---- "This is why we are Doomed" then weep for all who live on this "Blue Planet"

              Regards, Alois

                This is how you're supposed to write spam:

                "Anonymous has left a new comment:

                Anyway I will be subscribing in your feeds or even I success you get admission to persistently quickly."

                [embed URL for dodgy site]

                Or:

                "Anonymous has left a new comment:
                Sometime few educational blogs become very helpful while getting relevant and new information related to your targeted area.

                Now that's professional spamming!

                  Gordo, Excellent advice! I think these may be from actual spams that have been previously removed by our moderators. Hah!

                  Hey guys
                  I've been reading your comments.
                  Any ways reducing paper waste can help our environment in several ways.
                  It can reduce the recycling process too. We've to think on the plans to implement it
                  Thanks for your comments

                        Forget makeready. Sell 'em those sheets to, don't throw them away. Tell your customer it's for the planet, they'll understand. Industry standard is plus or minus ten percent for quantities, correct? Well let's change that. Forget printing extras and always print ten percent under. It's for the planet, they'll understand. You know what, while we're at it, instead of printing a thousand flyers, tell 'em to buy a thousand tablets and don't print anything. I mean, since we got rid of paper bags at the grocery stores, plastic bags have been so much better for the environment, right?

                        Why do people forget that trees grow and petroleum does not? When it comes to the environment, why do people pick on the printing industry? I'm not saying there isn't room for improvement. Why not pick on Apple or Samsung? They convince millions of people to throw away a functioning phone nearly annually for a phone that is slightly different. What sustainable materials are used in smartphone manufacturing?

                        When I first opened my shop, I stocked a lot of 100% recycled, made with windpower paper. Once the customer saw the price, they asked for the in-house or cheaper paper. Or I would lose bids. My point, hazelp, is that a lot of these environmental issues are consumer driven. They want to be as cool as everyone else as conveniently as possible. For example, toner versus ink. If I am correct, toner is made with petroleum. But our customers are demanding smaller runs with shorter turn around times. Press ink is soy-based, I believe? (Sorry, been a long time since I ran an offset press).

                          Keith,
                          Right on the nailhead. The hypocrisy of business (and society) is revealed every time the choice between cost and rectitude is posed.
                          A good chuckle and a bit to ponder. The minutiae of the day was relieved. Thanks, Keith !

                            Hi
                            You've nailed it, Keith. People need to be educated to protect our environment. It will help our next generation top. grow up nurturing our environment. They should be educated to live without destroying our natural resources.
                            Thanks everyone who had given positive feed backs regarding this.
                            Cheers

                              Make memo pads. When printing a job on a sheet size that will have enough blank space, add your logo and address. After printing, separate what will be the memo pads from the customers job, cut them down to needed size and turn them into memo pads for employee use or perhaps as customer giveaways.
