Capital University is practicing sustainability by reducing their amount of paper waste. That’s why they started the Going Green Print & Copy Program. Capital took a look at how much students were using printers and copiers and decided to allot a $50.00 – or 500 page – print and copy credit to each student per semester. This limit is projected to reduce excessive printing and save Capital over 120,000 printed pages each semester.
