I used to use a lot of paper in my law practice. Then I had 10 feet of water in my office after Hurricane Sandy and my file cabinet was outside, drying off for the next six months. Let’s just say I went paperless after that.
I’m still amazed that today, retirement plan providers still use paper and a lot of it when so much can be done online or in some digital format. You can save a lot of trees by moving some or most of your work to a non-paper format and I enthusiastically support the American Retirement Association’s imitative in trying to push the Department of Labor to go digital for notice requirements.
If you’re looking to cut costs in your business, see how you can save on paper. Saving trees and money is a good thing.
