68% of Printed Paper is Wasted Per Year by Office Workers

To put the United States print consumption into perspective, 30% of the world’s paper is consumed here, a staggering amount when you consider that the US accounts for less than 5% of the world’s population. It has also been reported that the average office worker prints 10,000 sheets of paper each year, with 68% of this being wasted, an astonishing amount.

Reasons for print wastage include:

  • Documents not being picked up from the printer- this is not only a waste but also a security threat
  • Printing unnecessary email pages
  • Documents not being defaulted to duplex
  • Printing duplicates
