Results and Effectiveness
We create awareness among students about the importance of using both sides of a paper sheet. After the action many of the photocopying centres in the universities are using both sides of the sheets. In three of the most important universities of Bogotá, the students decided to be part of this activity and convinced their schools and departments to start recycling paper. It was a low-cost and effective idea.

Creative Execution
Our creative solution was teaching students that when they need a copy to use both sides of the sheet and so they help to save trees and forest life. Our action concentrated at the place in the city where more paper is wasted: the large photocopying centers of the universities. There, a group of WWF handed out to students a sheet printed on both sides. Placing it backlight they discovered an image formed by a monkey, a tree and a bird. The text said: Look at this backlit ad and save monkeys. Print on both sides.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
In the 19th century forests covered 85% of the Colombian territory, today only 50% of this forest is maintained. Thanks to ecosystems as these Colombia is recognized as the second country with the greatest biodiversity. The bad use of paper in photocopiers has worsened this problem, especially among students. Our insight was born of the need the youth has of taking care of the environment. They are committed with their future and their planet. A new green thought is overcoming them and they need to help, but how? Our strategy was simple: Tell young students to use both sides of the paper sheet when needing a photocopy. According to the Ministry of Environment, 95% of forest fires are human-caused, 5% due to natural causes. This idea was relevant to WWF because Colombia, is the second most biodiverse country in the world
