E-mail kills trees, British study says

November 18, 2001

LONDON — The use of e-mail has increased paper consumption in offices by 40 percent, a study shows.

Richard Harper, director of the University of Surrey's digital world research center, found the amount of paper used in offices increased with the introduction of each new communications technology: fax, e-mail or the latest development, instant messaging.
