This is a good example - the message did not use paper!

There is a strange malady I call 'printitis'. It occurs the minute the computer is connected to the printer, and the operator continues to hit the 'print' command. How many of us print too much? I print letters and documents.

Signed with much happiness. When is the United States going to see what a giant overuser of paper we are?? We need to be sending these out, to whoever is in charge of these companies! Anyone who knows who those people are, please start a petition. Great info, Elena

There are signs of Nature being way out of sync ALL OVER, ice melting, forests dissappearing, mercury in the air and food, etc.,etc.,etc.and yet almost everybody goes off to "work" everyday oblivious because the TV says everything is okay, well sort of. Or they are waiting for their Gov't to do something while they eat toxic food and talk on their toxic cellphone watching Starsearch or whatever that show is. WAKE UP !!!!!! I have been studying the situation for 15 months now, this gov't and other Gov'ts have barely done anything, except talk and finally admit there is a environmental problem. The only change that is going to help is if WE change OUR LIFESTYLES and spread the word, OUR GOV"T IS BROKEN< FACE IT NOW B4 ITS TOO LATE! RESERCH< THINK , take PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY of YOUR LIFE and for heavens sake don't let the fear they promote get you, its what they thrive on. THx again Elena!

Thank you Serge, Dar, Lynn, Louise, LL, Daniel and Donna for your comments.
hehehe .... Daniel ... I like that term! And for the last little while I do have days that I do not print anything (TG). I don't even turn the printer in my office on unless I really, really have to. I also attached to my e-mail signature: "Before printing this e-mail, consider if it is necessary to cut a tree." - hopefully to make other think twoce before printing.
Hugs to all, and thank you all again for taking action. It is up to us to make a difference!
