Metrics Monday | Paper Reduction

Good job Huskies! We’re using less paper!!!

In July 2009, Washington State passed a paper conservation and recycling act (Substitute House Bill 2287) directing state agencies to create programs to reduce paper consumption by at least 30% and use 100% recycled copy paper.

Goal 1: Decrease total paper purchased 30% from 2008-2009 levels.
Goal 2: Increase purchasing amount of one-hundred percent recycled paper to 100%.

We’re seeing a bit of an up-swing in paper use so it’s time to be a GOOD DAWG! and reduce paper use again. Need ideas on how to do that? Visit the UW Paper Reduction Committee webpage.
