printing tips

Creighton University is devoted to leading a greener and more sustainable lifestyle, even down to how we print. This begins with the Canon fleet printers located in offices throughout campus. By making sustainable choices with on-campus printing at Creighton - printing double-sided, printing black and white, and scanning instead of printing - we can reduce our impact on the environment, reduce waste and reduce costs.

Creighton is making smarter print choices through sustainable devices and technology in our printers. Canon printers at Creighton are 25 percent more energy efficient than conventional technologies, and are ENERGY STAR qualified. White LED scanning saves 70 percent more energy compared to conventional bulbs and the toner-saving mode is 20 percent more economical than normal toner usage. Even the hardware on the printers is more environmental; the plastics are both recycled and plant-based.

  • The most common type of tree used for paper production will yield more than eight thousand sheets of 8.5" x 11" paper.
  • One regular sheet of that 8.5" x 11" paper will require 15 ounces of water to make.
  • For every pound of regular office paper produced, 2.8 pounds of carbon dioxide is created.

Through smarter choices on our local scale, we can make global impacts.
