New WWF File Format Does Not Allow You to Print

4 Dec

The World Wide Fund for Nature has developed an ingenious new idea to address the problem of overprinting. A new file format that will not allow you to print.

In their promotional video (see below), WWF makes a pretty powerful case. They argue that with the growing popularity of .pdf documents and the frequency of laptop access, the need to print documents has truly decreased. With regards to the costs to the environment, they suggest that simply PDFing, and not printing, one document could save a tree.

They’ll save you the internal debate about whether you need to print. You can’t do it with the WWF file format! (Take note Middlebury professors).
