Upper management has decided to "go green." They asked for volunteers for a greening committee, and the committee has issued some procedures to begin with the new year (cleaning products, paper products, landscaping practices around building, etc.)
The one recommendation that is causing a rebellion is that all printing and photocopying be printed on both sides or "duplexed" or that more than one page be printed on each sheet of paper.
Now we are getting deluged with complaints from employees. We don't have any duplex copiers, so people will have to print one page, and then reinsert it in the paper drawer to print on the next page (or do this for several pages). This is time consuming and causes a back up at our copiers (we only have one per department).
Also, people who have poor eyesight are complaining about printing more than one page on a sheet as they have difficulty reading it or reading small print will give them headaches.
Any ideas on compromise here? Don't think duplex copiers are in our budget.
