How Document Management Contributes Towards World Paper Free Day
As we all know, today marks the mid-term Election Day. There’s another important aspect of today, though. The Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) developed what is called World Paper Free Day. AIIM is a nonprofit that provides standards, research and education for information professionals. World Paper Free Day was established to raise awareness of the massive amount of paper used unnecessarily and to promote paperless technologies.

More about World Paper Free Day
Annual World Paper Free Day helps spread the word about how much paper is being used and wasted. Reducing the amount of paper used daily can help illustrate ways to it at the office more permanently.
Consider these statistics:
- Office workers on average use 10,000 sheet of copy paper each year.
- Less than 5 percent of the world’s U.S. population consumes more than 30 percent of the world’s paper.
- Large amounts of printed paper get thrown in the trash daily – about 45 percent.
- 68 million trees are cut down per year for paper products.
Digitizing your Paper Documents
Digitizing your documents can help keep the clutter out of the office. According to AIIM research, 51 percent of people regularly scan documents to archive them. Digital backups of documents are handy, but also consider that it was found that 43 percent of companies were immediately put out of business by a major loss of computer records, and 51 percent permanently closed their doors within two years.
If your business has been around for a while, we can assume that there may be filing cabinets, storage boxes, maybe even storage rooms full of paper documents.
