Ottawa (April 22, 2008) - According to Energy Star, a joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, one of the most energy-intensive pieces of business equipment is the paper-intensive fax machine because it is often left on around the clock.
In order to eliminate fax machine waste and energy, MyFax, a leading Internet fax service provider, is rewarding consumers and businesses alike who properly dispose of their fax machines through a recycling center or charitable organization. With proof of proper disposal, MyFax is awarding three free months of Internet faxing service through May 31, 2008. Suggestions about where to recycle can be found at www.myfax.com/green.
"There are many minor adjustments businesses can make that significantly contribute to environmental conservation," said Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus. "Eliminating a fax machine is an easy way to use less paper and saves trees, reduce energy in the office, and save oil required to produce toner cartridges. If 1% of all paper faxes sent in America each year were sent electronically, 73.5 million trees would be saved."
MyFax allows users to securely send and receive faxes via e-mail. Since faxes are sent and received using existing email accounts and the Web, the need for fax machines, fax servers, fax supplies, dedicated lines, and costly long-distance charges is eliminated.
MyFax was recently awarded the Gold Award from "TopTenREVIEWS," an Internet publisher of expert technology and entertainment reviews utilized by millions of consumers. MyFax was praised for the service's ease of use, outstanding customer service and support and affordable pricing.
