How much paper is in your wallet?
During 2011, the U.S. government will print about 6.8 billion bills, according to the United States Bureau of Engraving and Printing. That’s enough paper to stretch around the Earth more than 26 times!*
It’s amazing when we think about everything we use paper for on a daily basis: cash, check, notes, contracts, invoices, etc.
Obviously, the green stuff is not something you’d want to shred and recycle; however, of all the paper used in your place of business or home office, much of it contains sensitive information you wouldn’t want to fall into the wrong hands.
Old tax documents, junk mail, credit card forms, employee applications, health insurance documents — these are just a few of the items identity thieves would love to get their hands on. And if you’re a business owner, you could even be held liable if this sensitive information is compromised.
Don’t risk it! Call EcoShredding today to find an affordable solution for your shredding needs, and keep more of the green paper where it belongs — in your wallet.
