Go Green, Print Lean!

How can I help conserve paper?

We always ask that you consider the environment before printing, but we realize there are simply times when printing is necessary. For those times, we strongly encourage double-sided printing. Look for the following confirmation prompt when printing to a Trinity printer or copier.

Also, emails and course syllabi are automatically converted to double-sided printing. You too can contribute to the success of Green Trinity by ensuring your document is converted to double-sided automatically.

Simply add the word “duplex” into your document’s file name.

  • Example 1: If your document’s file name is APA Style Guidelines.docx, simply rename or save-as APA Style Guidelines duplex.docx.
  • Example 2: If your spreadsheet’s file name is BADM Rubric.xls, simply rename or save-as BADM Rubric duplex.xls.
  • Example 3: If your document’s file name is Exam Questions.doc, simply rename or save-as Exam Questions duplex.doc.

For example, if a 10 page document was uploaded to Moodle as APA Style Guidelines duplex.docx, anyone that downloads and prints this document from a Trinity printer will be converted to double-sided.
