In the average office one copier prints 8000 pages per machine a month. If within one office there are 10 copiers, 80,000 pages are printed per month.

20% color pages       at ¥ 20  = 16,000 pages   ¥ 320,000
80% monochrome      at ¥ 5    = 64,000 pages   ¥ 320,000

                 Total cost of printing = ¥ 640,000

And that’s just the ink.
The cost of printing for a year is more than a person’s salary. Is it really necessary ?
If even 30% of the cost was saved it would be ¥230,000 yearly 

Since 1990, deforestation has taken over 1/3 of Japan’s forests. In a span of 15 years Japan lost 82,000 hectares of forest. Which is the almost the size of Kyoto city.

Deforestation causes soil erosion, landslides, carbon sequestration and floods. All while contributing to global warming.

About 20% of Japan’s forest is considered to be primary forest which is the most bio-diverse. Of the known 919 species of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians 19.3% are endemic meaning they don’t exist elsewhere expect in Japan. Although 13.2% of these species are threatened. Of the 5565 species of plants 35.9% are endemic to Japan.

We estimated the average person in Japan uses between 250 - 300 kg of paper per year. Producing 1 kilo of paper requires 2-3 times its weight in trees.

If you can recycle 1 ton of paper it save 17 trees, 1,440 liters of oil, 2.3 cubic meters of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy and 26,500 liters of water.

For the rest of the forest.
