We were randomly having a discussion at work today about papers and how much people print and how much trees it would be etc. We were looking at the printer stats and it said that the printers in that network has printed papers worth 15 trees......

Wouldn't it be cool if there was a way to re-use the paper that you have no longer use for. So like a copier that remove the ink rather then print it. Don't know how it would work but that would be awesome.

Could save so many trees & money. Just an idea.

People print so much crap. Between work and home, I probably print less than 50 pages a year, and usually then only because I have to fill in a form for some company who is too technically inept to let me do it online or via email.

I think the answer is just to stop printing things.

The technology exists, but not yet in a practical form.

Are your network printers double sided? Many networks do not use doublesiding as a default for some reason.

An Unprinter... hhhmmmmmmm

I've always thought an Unhighligher would be handy. You highlight something by accident and your are stuffed unless you erase the text & highlighting and rewrite it... stupid system :)




I'm not a complete idiot, I still have some parts missing.

Would not be surprised if it ended up in all printers one day, Wipe the paper with the laser before printing, Pre printed paper goes in, Gets wiped, Printed on, Comes out with just the new printing.
