Let’s face it, printing and copying isn’t a particularly ‘green’ process, but it IS a business necessity. So what can you do to choose the ‘greenest’ supplier, equipment and activities?
Use an environmentally conscious supplier
First Choice works closely with Xerox, a global supplier that has consistently worked to engineer environmentally friendly printers, copiers and other systems, and to develop practices that cut greenhouse gas production. Xerox has received major environmental awards worldwide, and has been a leader in implementing conservation measures and polices since the 1960’s.

Change to a solid ink printer or MFP
If you change to solid ink printing, you could recude wastage to 1/20th! Safe and toxin-free, solid ink is supplied in minimal packaging, with no plastic cartridges to dispose of in landfill. What’s more, solid ink printers and MFPs are built with far fewer replaceable components.

Install GreenPrint YOU can be greener?
GreenPrint eliminates unwanted pages from print jobs, saving time, paper, ink and money. It automatically detects waste pages, with an easy 'preview' interface so you can add and remove pages before printing.

Change to a Multi-Function device
Instead of using standalone products for printing, copying, scanning and faxing, change to a Multi Function Printer (MFP) that combines all functions in one machine, so saving electricity (and office space).
Ask us about MFP's
With the email and scan-to-file capabilities, you can send documents digitally instead of in hard copy format, saving time, paper, ink and transport.
