Conscious Printing

A continued dependency on printed documents sparks an eco movement

Implications - As the continued push towards more workspaces adopting a paperless ethos and less printer use among consumers, a rise in eco-friendly printing innovations are reintroducing the office practice without the associated waste. The increase in ecological options is helping to satisfy green-minded Millennials while still respecting more traditional mainstays of office life. These cost-effective solutions also reignite the consumer printing market as many individuals have chosen to ditch the technology in recent years thanks in part to increased smartphone and tablet usage.
