British workers are printing less business documents than 12 months ago in a bid to be more environmentally friendly.

This is according to research by printer ink firm Lexmark, which found that 73 per cent of respondents to its poll stated they made less paper copies of emails this year than they did in 2010.

Meanwhile, a further 53 per cent stated that they had cut back on printing general company and marketing documents.

However, in some cases the green message was ignored, with over 60 per cent admitting they forgot to change their machines to the duplex setting, which is more environmentally friendly and cost efficient as it prints on both sides.

Gary Bourland, country general manager for Lexmark, added: "It is heartening to see from this poll that over the past year people have been more environmentally conscious and are now printing less in their everyday tasks."

Lexmark recently released its T650 Series scanner, which it claims improves the efficiency of a number of its printer ink devices as an add-on feature.
