There are seemingly infinite ways for copier, printer and other document imaging machines to adversely affect the environment. Their use of paper, multiple emissions of gases such as ozone while they are being operated, consumption of energy and the chemicals that can be emitted when they're being manufactured or discarded can all affect not just the outside environment, but also the people and the environment inside of the buildings in which they are being operated.

Many business owners are aware of the burdens that office machines can place on the environment. As a result, many choose to make more environmentally conscious decisions when it comes to choosing document imaging products.
