Paperless and Proud

Derek K. Yu’s San Mateo, CA based law firm has not only gone paperless, but as of March 30, Mr. Yu’s firm has planted 256 new trees with environmentally conscious clients in celebration of important dates, such as holidays.

According to today’s press release at PR Web, Derek K. Yu was quoted as saying:  “I am a business attorney with a very document intensive law practice. To reduce my carbon footprint and save trees, it is my policy to digitize all paper in my law office, and use paper only if necessary and required. I have about 100,000 documents in my client files and legal library that are stored in my computer amounts. If all those documents were printed on paper, that’s easily a million pages of wasted paper. Over 90% of documents are now being created only electronically, and will never be printed on paper. As a result of a paperless file, I have the convenience of being able to carry my entire client file and legal library in a desktop computer or laptop, instead of being tied down to my brick and mortar office. I can also access files instantly, no matter where I am located. There is also no need to waste time filing and searching through hard copies in a file cabinet.”

According to the same press release, document intensive industries such as legal services contribute to the demand for paper, which consumes 35% of harvested trees in the world.
