The offices paper waste
1. What Problem do you want to solve ?
The paper waste in the industry sector (offices, factories, schools...) that participates in deforestation. Indeed the recycling process is not enough efficient to resolve this problem (for instance it mostly depends on people commitment).
We want to significantly reduce paper waste, which is the most important waste in terms of material.
2. Why does this problem exist?
This problem exists due to the large consumption of paper in the companies. Printers, printed mails, fax, documents of any types... often ends up in the trash without being systematically sorted and recycled.
Even though companies and the government have raides awareness towards this problem, there is still a large waste of paper and evermore paper that is not recycled.
For instance, it exists paper reduction tips as :
- print or copy on both sides
- use electronic data
- print not important document on paper already used (...)
But there are clearly not enough sufficient.
3. What breakthrough are you commited to creating?
Our Team is willing to find an alternative to the recycling of paper. We want to think about a permanent recycling solution : faster and easier.
We want people to find a playful and day-to-day solution that will become an habit.
