A few days ago I have received an e-mail that was ending with:
As you probably know paper is used excessively in offices and most time is waste. Documents are printed for a few minutes use and the paper is then thrown away. If we could somehow reduce paper usage we will reduce our expense and we’ll help the environment.
Maybe the amount paper you save will not be impressive but if this attitude is adopted by many people the results will definitely be visible. It is a simple action that can be made without negative side effects.
Even more, the whole message including the “picture” is just text so it can be included almost anywhere. The first character is letter “P” (capital P) of the Webdings font and the rest of the message is a text with a font you choose. Text color should be green (I used 0,120,0 or #006600 ).
Also the message can be customized for other purposes like: “… printing this page”, ” … printing this document” etc.
I will use it in my e-mail signatures and, I think, that will appear also on the footer of this website.
