    Regarding recycling: What are the best ways to not use paper?

    We use, throw away and/or recycle so much unwanted or unused paper these days. What are some of the ways you can think of to NOT USE paper?

    Meena Coaching Centre supplies mobile phone to the students and asks them to send  the answers for multiple choice  questions through SMS. The smartphone values the answers and sends back to the students within  three seconds the correct  answers, percentage of marks secured and their marks. Paper work is totally eliminated.

    Banks can eliminate paper work by using technology.

    Go digital. It's already happening. I read most of my news online and pay bills and do banking online. My diary is on my usb drive. You can even put coupons on your shoppers cards. Get a small laptop or tablet and you can type your notes in class rather than writing them out. That's about all I would use paper for on a regular basis.

    1) I stopped using papertowels several years ago - after my first child was born (I have three toddlers).  Paper towels, paper napkins and kids are just a given, but it's completely possible to use cloth napkins and cloth rags all the time.

    2) I also stopped subscribing to magazines.  I love fashion magazines, business magazines, parenting magazines, and the every now, and then trash magazine, but I just stopped.  Magazines - they take up so much room and you just go through them once - don't get me wrong - I still go online and look at magazines and I am on tons of e-mail lists and still read tons of magazine article - it's the only way to stay "cool" and "current."

    3) I don't ask for a receipt - I was at an tradeshow a few years ago - and there was someone that got a reward for creating "the three second receipt" - something like that - anyway - made me think how unimportant receipts are - and what a waste of paper they are.

    4) I get all my bills electronically EXCEPT my bank statements and I use to look at my overall picture (and I use Quickbooks Accountant Edition)

    5) I always recycle my paper at home - I print on both sides - and I have children use both sides for their coloring and sometimes painting projects.

    Make the switch to on-line publications, e-notifications and newsletters, use cloth napkins/towels and handkerchieves, request that companies stop sending junk mail/catalogs, recycle gift bags, and send e-vites and e-cards. I frankly don't worry so much because I choose to use recycled paper products and then recycle again. There are worse things for the environment than paper such as plastic and e-waste.In fact, I will choose cardboard packaging over plastic anyday because I can compost it!
