October 25th is World Paper Free Day. According to AIIM, “Research shows that we will have close to 10x more information in 2011 compared to 2006, which means that organizations with paper-based processes and archiving will drown in paper. Going paperless will therefore not only help the environment, but make an organization more efficient with easier and simultaneous access to valuable information from across the organization.”
In The Paper-Free Process Revolution Handbook (a free download), AIIM asks you to commit one day to:
- Not printing anything
- Investigating a business process or technology that can cut the paper waste in your office
- Participating in or producing a local Paper Free Day event
More than 57,000 people reportedly participated in last year’s Paper Free Day. Did you participate? Will you participate this year? Embrace the challenge of going paperless on October 25th.
Check out the Paper Free Day site for more information and resources, including links to the Paper Free Day group on Facebook and a LinkedIn conversation. There will also be two Tweetjams (Oct. 18 and Oct. 25).
