Going Paperless This Year

My New Year’s resolution for 2013 arose with my efforts to try and treat our environment in the best possible way that I can, because, let’s face it, there are enough people who don’t.

I am not trying to say that one should ditch all paper use from one day to another, simply because it sometimes isn’t possible. You will still receive mail through your letter box and (with respect to being a scientist) you will still have to print and hand sign out your travel claims forms. (more…)

De-Centralising Our Mindset
