Save a tree

Every day, entire forests are cut down to make paper – paper that’s senselessly used to print out documents all over the world: websites, emails, even entire reports instead of those few pages that are really needed and read.

This happens in spite of the fact that it’s easy to avoid printing by saving the document as a PDF. But even PDFs can sometimes also be printed out.

So to stop unnecessary printing and encourage a new awareness about the use of paper, the WWF has developed a new, green file format: WWF – a format that can’t be printed out. 

Decide for yourself which of your documents don’t need printing – and save them as WWF. Go to to download the software. 

See VISI 55, our Wood Issue that’s on sale now, for more ideas and information on saving trees.
