How green is print?

Good question. When millions of trees, more precisely 10 Million trees, are cut every day for paper and lots of chemicals being flood out of ink manufacturing units and printing presses the question may seem to be out of place. No, not really. You cannot avoid all but can compensate or minimise the loss of some and reduce the impact. Not all papers you see use trees and most of it is recycled.  You cannot avoid paper by far, but what about reusing or minimizing the use or recycling them?

When it comes to environment, society and mending the world we all think of major steps, big moves and end of the day stop where we started. No big leaps can be made without small steps.  It is the small, humble steps that made the mankind achieve great heights. So what you can do today to save the planet, when it comes to print?
