E-mail font to save UW-Green Bay money

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has come up with a green way to save money via e-mail.

According to an Associated Press report, the college is going to change the default e-mail font from Arial to Century Gothic.

In the report, the UW-Green Bay said, "the change sounds minor, but it will save money on printer ink when students print out e-mails in the new font . . . Diane Blohowiak is the school's director of computing. She says the new font uses about 30 percent less ink than the previous one . . . That could add up to real savings, since the cost of printer ink works out to about $10,000 per gallon."

This is a novel idea. I never would have thought of it. I mean, who would have guessed one font would take less ink than another when printing?

But I guess it makes sense.

Good work, UW-Green Bay.
