Student printing has in recent months reached excessive levels at MDX.
Unnecessary printing and copying are not only detrimental to the environment, but cost the University significant sums which could otherwise be spent on further improving student facilities and services. In collaboration with MDXSU the University encourages students to consider the ethical and environmental implications of their actions, including printing and copying.
The production of paper has an impact beyond just felling trees grown as a commercial crop. It requires a large resource input in terms of energy, water and chemicals, producing large volumes of solid, liquid and gaseous waste, some of which is hazardous.
Guidance on ways to minimize your printing and copying requirements can be found here.
