Going Greener: New Copier Paper at DeSales

In honor of Earth Day in April and with an eye on conservation of our earth’s resources, DeSales University is switching to copier paper with recycled content.  New orders for copy paper will be receiving Office Depot’s environmentally friendly paper which has 30% recycled content. The quality of the recycled content paper matches the existing “virgin” stock and costs less which will help stretch you department’s budget, not to mention save trees and energy.

Thank you for supporting this effort.
