One of the most practical and worthwhile accomplishments at the Smith’s School of English スミス英会話 in recent history is Going Paperless. This is an important trend taking shape at some of the most progressive companies genuinely worried about the state of the Planet Earth environment, and there is already a general pride of achievement throughout our organization in this effort.
In order to worry about the Planet with real conviction, however, it is critical to make such efforts sustainable. At the Smith’s School of English in Kotoen スミス英会話 甲東園, for example, a concerted, sustainable effort toward going Paperless has already been noted by the English Conversation students there. Fewer than a dozen pieces of paper are in regular use, down from probably more than two hundred just three years ago. There are a very small number that actually should be on hardcopy, but even these can be in the form of a reusable template written in pencil and later erased, or something on heavier paper that can and should last. The point is that in either case the paper should be reusable whenever possible, just like a good old-fashioned book!
Just the other day the fax machine let me know that it was out of ribbon. I had completely forgotten that the fax machine even needed ribbon, and that it ran out only because it was busily making a single copy that saved a student several minutes time taking notes. Five rolls of fax ribbon used to last about half a year. How long will these new five last I wonder?
