Personally, I feel that the more we save on paper usage, the better it is for the environment on the whole. Basically, what we really need is just an effective way for informational transfer and dissemination. The nature of paper usage tends to be wasteful. This is because, even when the information dissemination has been completed, paper as the medium’s physical conduit remains. Thus, in a not-so-ideal way, Paper as a medium often outlives its usefulness in many occasions.
