    Dutch Senators have finally moved on to greener ways to deal with their documents than printed papers. With Apple iPads introduced in the upper house of the parliament, the Dutch Senate is the first in Europe to distribute digital documents and push away paper use! Also, the Senators are currently being instructed on how to use the Senate app specially designed for the iPad. With 150,000 Euros ($201,053) spent on developing the application and buying the iPads, the Senate expects paybacks in about a year, saving about 140,000 Euros ($191,184) in printing and courier costs, while saving the lives of innumerable trees around!
