[GreenYes] Calculate enviro. savings from green printing


A local environmental newsletter included the following in formation
about the benefits to the environment made by their choice of paper and
ink. I was wondering if someone has developed some formula or
"calculator" like the envir.footprint website, where a newletter editor
could type in the specifics on paper and ink and get the number of trees
saved, etc.

Any suggestions on existing formulas or website that could do this would
be very helpful. I understand that e-news has additional benefits but
for now I just want info on paper newsletters and not a discussion of one
form of media over another.

By Printing the Californai Update with begetable-based inks on
100%post-consumer recycled paper amdw with windmill energy, we saved:

169 trees
7,951 lbs. of landfill * 15,656 lbs of greenhouse gas emissions
71,864 gallons of water
119,836,400 BTUs of energy

includes the graphic for FSC
Recycled supporting responsible use of forest products

and the chasing arrows with 100% in the center

(*Bad language really it would have to be converted to volumn and then it
would be saved this much space in the landfill)
