SPRING GROVE, IL--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2013) - According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the typical office employee generates up to 1.5 pounds of wasted paper per day. For a 30-person office, this could mean throwing away 2,340 pounds of paper annually. By reducing this waste, an office can save up to seven trees per year.

Cartridge World is offering a new free software app, called PrintEco™, to reduce the amount of wasted paper and cut paper costs by as much as 24 percent. The free app is the newest way Cartridge World, the world's leading retailer of eco-friendly ink and toner printer cartridges, helps businesses and consumers save money and improve the environment.

With the click of a button, the PrintEco app optimizes print documents and reduces paper waste. The app automatically reads document size and offers reformatting options to reduce the page count. The free software, available to businesses and consumers at www.CartridgeWorld.com/PrintEco, can save hundreds of wasted printed pages annually.

"If small businesses are looking for ways to cut cost and reduce their eco footprint, PrintEco is a great tool," said Tom McLaughlin, Cartridge World's North American Director of Marketing. "This free Cartridge World app helps busy professionals eliminate printing extra pages containing a single line or two of text -- or dozens of pages with an extra Excel worksheet column. PrintEco is just one more way Cartridge World helps save time, money and the environment."
