Act 4: Turn off printers when not in use

Our 25 Acts tip for today is: If My Family Turns Off Our Printer When Not In Use

We can save 100 kgCO2/year

That’s like planting 0.5 trees

Saved 130 kWh/year, if printer runs one hour/day instead of 8.

Find out if printers in your school are turned off when not in use. Talk to staff in the office or library to ask if printers could be turned off between uses and after hours, and whether a reminder poster or note would help people remember to turn them off.
