Home printing gets greener. And probably cheaper.
So I've finally found the perfect muffin recipe online, and I desperately want to print it out to have in hand while in the kitchen. But I've committed to avoiding printing because I want to be more eco-friendly. What do I do?
I go to an amazing website that's helping out with that very issue.
allows you to go to any web page and select, isolate, and print only
what you actually need, so you'll use less ink and paper. With just a few clicks you can remove ads,
delete unneeded images, widen columns, even increase the font size. I
also find it's smart for printing online directions, forms, or articles
or blog posts (like this one!) you really want to save.
I signed up for a free account and gave it a test run with a recipe. Here's a before sample:
As you can see, there's a huge difference when you ditch the ads and the header, and keep a single image and just the relevant content.
And if you're really green, you'll use the back of the
same sheet of paper for the next recipe. Smart and easy. -Cecily
