Can Print Actually Be Sustainable? [Infographic]

They eliminate the use of paper and printing by moving everything into a digital space, where their team members can access documents via a computer or mobile device. Whatever platform they choose to operate in, files are viewed on screens more than paper. However, is it possible that print is actually sustainable?
