Save Trees Save Money

eFaxEarth Day has come and gone, and the Green Festival has blown through the Windy City. So does that mean thinking green is put aside until next year? Hardly! Especially for us entrepreneurs, thinking goes on all of the time, and in many instances it is often labeled as merely saving money.

Last week I was talking with a business partner and she was commenting on the cost of faxing for her, with an aging fax machine and a separate phone line. Asking me how I fax, I told her I use eFax and I don’t have either. The monthly cost is much less than a phone line, faxes come in as PDFs, and with Adobe Acrobat Professional to markup faxes no paper is involved.

I have been striving to be as paperless as possible, mostly to reduce clutter and to organize and index content for future use. Though eFax is nothing new, I have created one convert, who will be getting greener in more ways than one, just as I have been.

What ways do you save money and the environment at the same time?
