We are in a digital era. There are many who think the use of paper is obsolete. There may be some possibilities to that. Most people these days do the bulk of their writing on their cell phones and computers. There still are a few people that keep an actual journal, but they are rear. Most personal devices such as mobile phones, iPads and such comes equipped with a built-in journal. It is more convenient to put you schedule on you mobile. The mobile phone as become an integral part of the lifestyle of today’s people.

There are a few businesses that still use paper for many aspects of their operation, but they will soon have to go digital. It is just more economical. The amount of information that can be stored digitally vastly exceed that which can be saved on paper. Information stored on paper is easier to get damage.

The use of paper is not yet obsolete, and it won’t be for another couple decades. There are too many niches that can’t be filled by anything other than paper. There are still some stationeries that cannot be replace digitally. There are still some very successful companies whose business is paper. Paper is still consumed in bulk especially in governments. There will be a time when paper will be obsolete, but that time has not here yet.

The people that make this statement are those who spend a large percent of their time on their cell phones. There is nothing wrong with moving with the time but that is what you must do, move with the times and not from it. If you do believe that paper really serves no purpose you need to think about what paper is still used for. The first thing you should think about is toilet paper. Can you live without toilet paper? Yes, you can because there are wipes. No, you can’t because it is not very economical to replace toilet paper with wipes. There is no government that will approve this. The resources of the planet are already declining to put more pressure on them is ridiculous.

You can make a good case about irrelevance of paper, but the fact is, paper is still very relevant to our society. Paper is used for so many things it is unbelievable. It is true to say that using paper to store data is irrelevant and you could say using paper to aid in advertising is irrelevant and you would be a hundred percent correct. You will never be correct in the era that we live in to say that paper is obsolete. Paper will be relevant to our society for at least another couple decades and may be for a time long after that. We are in a digital era but not every aspect of our society is digital. We are close, but we are not quite there yet. You can make an argument but the importance of paper, but you will lose in this era.
