The large amount of paper that finds its way into recycling bins in campus computer labs is a clear sign that a significant change needs to take place.
Even the most conservation-unconscious observer could surmise that many students aren't being very efficient in the labs. And who can blame them? The number of pages that students can print in a single sitting has no noticeable bounds.
They might chalk up the wasted paper to a typo-ridden report here and an accidental reprint there, multiplied by the multitude of people who use the printing labs every day.
They might not think twice about how high the piles of stray sheets become, because the paper will be recycled and used again.
But students are being incredibly wasteful.
