Make Electronic Filing Work to save money and paper

this is a small idea, but it would save money and paper.... we have switched to electronic filing, but there are two ways in which we have not caught up. (1) we continue to be provided with sets of 3 file labels which are printed out before the case is assigned. One label is on the litigation folder, the other two are placed inside the folder for labelling the record on appeal, despite the fact that we no longer need them because the records are stored electronically. stop printing those extra labels, they are expensive and wasteful of paper. (2) we receive electronic notifications of all submissions to and orders from the Court. Yet we receive multiple printouts of these orders through our mail room. we need, at most, one printed copy, which the Court sends and the mailroom stamps received. whoever is printing those additional copies can stop doing that.
