Save Paper Desktop Widget

Save paper & money the fun way!

PaperCut has teamed up with Do Something, the non-profit organization behind the Save Paper initiative, to develop this innovative desktop widget. The widget, developed in Adobe Air and available for Windows, Mac and Linux, works by presenting data from the PaperCut server in a fun an interesting way. It helps organizations reduce their paper use by empowering employees/students/users with the following:

  • It draws users' attention to their printing impact
  • Allows users to compare/benchmark their usage
  • Highlights environmental facts about paper use
  • Supports a non-profit organization

The Save Paper Desktop Widget is an initiative developed to support the non-profit organization Do Something. Organizations using the widget are asked to make a donation of just $0.99 a user ($0.20 for education) with all proceeds going through to this non-profit to support their paper saving initiatives in business and the community.

Installation & Deployment

You may deploy this widget across your organization by directing users to this page and asking them to click on the install badge to the left. Alternatively the raw Adobe AIR program may be downloaded here. Please see the Adobe AIR website for information on enterprise deployment of AIR applications. You may need to obtain redistribution agreement from Adobe.
