The word green print conjures up all sorts of visions for people, from recycled paper, to less harmful inks, but this time it’s a bit different.
GreenPrint Technologies has introduced a new piece of software that can help save consumers time, money and the environment. The company estimates that with widespread use, the software could save over 100 million trees and reduce greenhouse gases by over 300 million tons globally.
“Our goal is nothing short of ending wasteful printing worldwide,” said CEO Hayden Hamilton. “We believe that GreenPrint World provides the opportunity to do exactly that. It gives home users everywhere the ability to eliminate waste which helps the environment as well as their wallets.”
GreenPrint software eliminates waste before printing by recognizing wasteful or useless items such as pages with just a URL, banner advertisement or logo and removes those items before a single page is printed.GreenPrint also allows users to remove images from a page with a single click before printing, resulting in significant savings in ink or toner. The software can also save the average user over $90 and 1,400 pages per year.
So what does this cost for the consumer? Well this is just another benefit of the software because for consumers and non-profits it is FREE.
