    LEXMARK & CANADA’s EARTH RANGERS GO
    GREEN TOGETHER

    RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO–
    Earth Rangers, Canada’s leading environmental education organization for
    children, has teamed up with Lexmark Canada, a global leader in
    printing and output solutions.”Besides their ability to meet our needs
    technologically, Lexmark’s unique approach to printing – in fact, their
    radical approach as a printing company – blends very well with our
    mission of reducing our carbon footprint, energy and paper consumption,”
    says Earth Ranger’s Senior Manager of Development, John Pepelnak.”When
    it comes to printing, if you’re serious about protecting the
    environment, you must address the amount you print,” says Lexmark Canada
    President Tim Emens. “That is one of the key reasons Lexmark developed
    the ‘Print Less, Save More’ approach. Energy use, product recycling, and
    materials used in production are all important environmental concerns,
    however, 80 per cent of the carbon footprint of any printing device is
    directly related to the paper it consumes.”(1)The project with Lexmark
    has reduced the amount of printing devices utilized at Earth Ranger’s
    headquarters in Woodbridge by 70 per cent. Its old printers are being
    responsibly recycled. The organization has also noticed a considerable
    reduction in its paper consumption.”In the initial phases of the
    project, we were able to save 34 per cent of our paper usage by going to
    print release capabilities, a Lexmark feature that uses individual key
    cards to release printing jobs,” says Earth Rangers IT Systems Manager
    Robert Di Stefano. “Our staff is already ‘green focused’ but the Eco
    Features and the Print Release capabilities are what have created the
    biggest impact in reducing our paper consumptions.”

    The Print
    Less, Save More strategy has also been applied to Lexmark’s large
    enterprise customers, with which the company works to optimize the
    printing hardware utilized as well as reduce unnecessary and wasteful
    printing. By deploying innovative workflow solutions, Lexmark can
    significantly reduce the need for paper, thereby reducing the total
    number of pages printed. Depending on the level of engagement, this
    reduction can generate savings of between 20 and 40 per cent.
