The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has switched its default e-mailing font to Century Gothic to save on money and help the environment.

UW-Green Bay’s Director of Computing and Information Technology Diane Blohowiak said Century Gothic uses roughly 30 percent less ink than the school’s former default font, Arial. Gothic even uses less than some “Eco Fonts.”

She said UWGB is interested in doing what it can to be environmentally conscious and minimize its use of resources.

“But it was also appealing to people to save money on their supply and expense budgets,” Blohowiak said.
