-> use both sides of paper ;
-> print and copy only if needed, on both sides (if possible: smaller and more compact) ;
-> use recycle bins ;
-> put on the mailbox "no catalog please" ;
-> use a slate or a board instead of "post-it" as a memo ;
-> subscribe to receive bills by email ;

... And try to involve someone else in this challenge with you !
