Green printing and an environmentally friendly mouse

Thanks to for highlighting a couple of interesting Green IT products:
Fineprint addresses the inherent waste in printing documents. Because users often don’t make the effort to use the most environmentally friendly print options, the Fineprint software sits between the application and the printer and makes it easier to select greener printing.
The software provides options of removing blank pages, grouping multiple pages on one sheet, eliminating unnecessary content (links, images, etc..) and duplex printing.

The other product is Corky, a wireless mouse that uses the kinetic energy from mouse movement and clicks for its power. It was designed and developed by Adele Peters in the US, but as far as I can tell it’s not (yet) available to buy. Pity.
