Paper Usage and Behavior Modification

On a college campus, paper is a well known commodity. Used for academic writings, projects, notes, and research, paper is printed at an incredible rate every semester. The amount of paper consumption on the Brockport college campus has brought about the idea of generating exercises that show how paper is used wastefully. This research involves behavior modification towards paper consumption by use of informative email, raffles for prizes, statistics on paper consumption, and cognitive dissonance. Comparative data will be presented relating paper use before and after the treatment package is implemented, along with the continuing practices of paper conservation by the sample population after treatment has ended.
