Green Print Job: Saving Paper
Wei Song, an R&D engineer at HP’s Little Falls Operation in Delaware, was responsible for a paper-saving innovation during testing of the HP 7673 automatic sampler and tray. The product printed side-by-side and on the back of paper, cutting the amount of paper used in testing by 75 percent. Song won the site’s environmental innovation award for his efforts. It wasn’t the only recognition given at the site in 1993: the State of Delaware later applauded Little Falls for its volunteer recycling efforts, which diverted more than 100,000 pounds of solid waste that otherwise would have gone to a landfill.
