Print Alternatives & Smart Printing in the Marriott Library
The Print Alternatives & Smart Printing in the Library Exhibit is one of two exhibits that ran during April and May of 2012 and was located in the display cases on level 2 of the J. Willard Marriott Library. This exhibit was part of a larger sustainability project titled The Paper Project, which included the following:
• Implemented the use of 30% post-consumer recycled paper in all public printers and copy machines. This change not only is environmentally smart but economically. The library received a cost saving of $3.00+ per carton of paper.
The Paper Project was a collaborative project between the J. Willard Marriott Library Green Committee and the U's EnviroClub designed to educate and create awareness about paper consumption, print alternatives, environmental impacts, and individual choice. The project was funded by the Sustainable Campus Initiative Fund (SCIF) and included the run of two exhibits: The Life Cycle of Paper and Print Alternatives & Smart Printing. The project was led by Karren Nichols, Marriott Library Sustainability Coordinator, and Todd Lehman, President, U of U EnviroClub.
