Green E-mail

Can e-mail be green?

Yes, I believe it can. I received one today with this little addition to the signature.
How many of us print off e-mails that really don't need to be printed because we read them and then throw them away?

So consider adding this to your email signature and think twice before printing your email. You never know how much less paper you might use.

You could write the information you need on your to-do list that you've already started. You could write it on a post-it and so use a smaller piece of paper. You could act on it immediately and then delete or file the email. Just think of all the alternatives.

A good chance to exercise some creativity. Just make sure your solution isn't as bad as what you're trying to replace.
