Modern Language Association: Improve your standards to incorporate Environment-Friendly practices

Climate Change is a growing issue and it's NOT a hoax. CO2 is increasing at a growing rate and deforestation just makes things worse. Yet the Modern Language Association, an organization that creates writing standards used by schools, academic departments, and instructors, is not considering the environmental harm its standards are causing. Just a couple insignificant rules more than doubles the pages needed to print an essay. It is time the MLA updates its standards and promotes paper conservation.
