Paperless Department

A paperless department is a work environment in which the use of paper is eliminated or greatly reduced.
This is done by converting documents and other papers into digital form. By "going paperless" we are
able to save money, boost productivity, save space, make documentation and information sharing easier,
keep personal information more secure, and help the environment.The concept can be extended to
communications outside our department as well.We at Department of Community Medicine, ACME believe that
renewable energy is the lifeblood of the future
Plastic Free Campus

School and college campuses are often the source of enormous amounts of plastic pollution.
