Government Printing-Paper Reduction

I suggest that printers across ALL government agencies have the default printing mode be double sided. This would drastically reduce the quantity of paper used - both a cost savings and green w.r.t. to paper use reduction. Typically printer setups are defaulted to single sided or don't have the ability to print double sided. The average person doesn't think about using double sided, if possible, but would if the printers were defaulted that way. The option to print single sided should be available and have to be selected as a conscious choice. Total dollars spent by the gov't on paper would be reduced.
