Businesses "Go Green" with MyFax Internet Fax Solution
Internet fax technology saves paper and is more energy efficient.

Ottawa, June 11, 2007 - It may seem like a small step, but businesses that switch from traditional faxing to Internet faxing can actually have a big impact on helping save the environment.

"There is a domino effect involved," says Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus IP Solutions, the provider of MyFax, one of the leading Internet fax services available internationally. "Internet faxing reduces the amount of paper a business uses. The ability to work with less paper not only helps conserve trees, it reduces the burden on paper mills, meaning less carbon dioxide is emitted into the atmosphere."

Electrical power creates carbon dioxide, which scientists say is the leading cause of global warming. The U.S. Department of Energy ranks paper production second to petroleum in energy use among major industries, meaning enabling the mills to use less electricity is a big boost to the environment.

Opting for an Internet faxing service is one way to reduce both paper and power in the office. Energy Star, a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, considers fax machines among the most "energy-intensive" type of business equipment because these machines often use electricity around the clock waiting for faxes that may be sent at any hour.

Because Internet faxing is a digitally centric technology, it allows users to send and receive documents via e-mail. That means there are no fax machines or fax servers taking up valuable space, constantly using electricity and creating carbon dioxide. Instead, with an Internet fax service like MyFax, the computer where someone receives the email fax does not need to be on to accept the transmission; it only needs to be running when someone is actually working on the computer.

There are other environmental issues that make Internet faxing a socially responsible technology to adopt as well. Dangerous bleaching chemicals such as chlorine, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen peroxide are used as whitening agents to make fax paper. Fax machines also require ink cartridges, which ultimately take up precious landfill space unless they are recycled.

Earlier this year, Technology Marketing Corporation"s (TMC) Communications Solutions Magazine awarded MyFax the 2006 Product of the Year Award. TMC President and Group Editor-in-Chief of Communications Solutions Rich Tehrani said, "MyFax has proven they are committed to quality and excellence in solutions that benefit the customer experience as well as ROI for the companies that use them."

And, in a review of Internet fax services, PC Magazine rates MyFax the best value for price of industry competitors. MyFax is available for only $10 USD per month or $110 USD per year. This price includes 100 outbound pages and 200 inbound pages per month. Volume pricing is also available.

With energy costs continuing to rise, that"s a bonus for business and a boon for the environment.
