The Minnesota Office of Environmental Assistance has launched its statewide office paper reduction campaign through a set of educational tools designed to address the needs of businesses. The OEA's information offers ideas for "breaking down the paper wall"-for instance, printing on both sides of paper and saving documents electronically versus printing them out. The state notes that Americans dump enough office paper each year to build a 12-foot-high wall from New York to San Francisco, or 10,000 sheets per person.
