Hello Saluki Green Action Team! Printing papers and keeping track of documents consumes a lot of resources and can become a hassle. Luckily, digital documents are becoming easier to use and are much greener!
Did You Know: Reducing paper use by 10% in the US alone would prevent the emission of 1.6 million tons of greenhouse gases — the equivalent of taking 280,000 cars off the road? (Source: http://www.faxcompare.com/blog/much-paper-can-digital-services-save/)
Take Action Now: Some documents at SIU can be signed digitally. More information about getting a digital signature at SIU can be found here! If someone asks you to print and sign a document, we encourage you to ask if there's a digital signature option. Even if that is not an option, asking the question can be the first step toward making a positive difference. Microsoft and Adobe have adapted to digital documentation and offer ways to fill in information and even sign documents. You can learn more about them by clicking the links embedded in their names!
Even Grey Dawg uses a digital signature to save time, money, and resources!
Invite your friends to join the team, too. If they mention that you referred them when they sign up, you'll receive an extra entry in our next prize drawing.
Keep up the great work,
Saluki Green Action Team
