Department of Justice

Save paper

In my office the default setting for printing paper is to print single sided. It is rarely necessary to print material on only one side of a page. Each time I print material (pleadings, court cases, memos, etc.) I change the default setting to print double sided. If the IT staff re-set the default setting for all printers to double sided, I would expect most employees to use that setting, cutting paper usage in half. I would expect that this single IT change could be applied across the Department of Justice (indeed, across the Executive Branch), saving an enormous amount of paper.
