Scanner and photocopiers
Environmental benefits scan 4

Using a scanner can also be environmentally friendly. Scanners create digital copies of documents, photos and files on your computer that you can email to other people or store and view on your own. Fax machines require hard copies and then reproduce more hard copies on more paper when they are received. Additionally, creating hard copies with a copy machine wastes both paper and energy. Scanners reduce the amount of paper that is used and therefore are an environmentally friendly way to conduct business.
