Business of Design Online: "Substantial Profits, Sustainably"

Dani Nordin, founder of the zen kitchen, was recently quoted in an article by Jess Sand at Business of Design Online. The article, Substantial Profits, Sustainably, shows how relatively simple changes can make a big difference in your studio's carbon footprint, as well as your bottom line. A quick excerpt:

Recycle and reuse. Designers love paper but nobody likes paperwork. Switch to a PDF workflow and save both money and time. Designer Dani Nordin of The Zen Kitchen says she “instituted a PDF workflow in the studio that makes proofing jobs significantly easier and saves printing costs.” She also bought a printer that easily turns out double-sided prints, which she insists has “saved money, time, headaches and trees.” I haven’t bought a single note pad since I started using all those not-quite-perfect printouts as scratch paper instead of simply tossing them. Electronics, old furniture and other items that you would typically throw out can often be either donated or recycled. If you’re unsure where to send them, do a quick search by zip code on Earth911.
