How MyLitBag Can Help Lawyers Be Environmentally Responsible

With the ever-changing global climate, offices around the world are looking for new ways to become more environmentally responsible and reduce their carbon footprint. Law offices are infamous for their wide use of printed documents, letters, and case files. Unfortunately, due to the confidentiality of these documents, lawyers find it harder to recycle papers that are no longer of relevance. This being said, there had to be a better option for law professionals to go green yet still maintain the functionality and confidentiality of physical documents. 

In 2018, LFW Enterprises, Inc. founders Maria Laguardia and Karen Wangen set out to create an application for legal professionals. Their goal was to increase productivity, facilitate the rise of remote working, reduce the carbon footprint, and reduce costs. Thus, MyLitBag was born. 

Digitize Your Documents With MyLitBag

Gone are the days of bookshelves and filing cabinets full of case files. This app can hold thousands of password-protected legal document binders. As well as eliminating the need for traditional heavy, physical binders. Worried about the functionality of digital documents? Don’t fret, with MyLitBag you can create tabbed binders with multiple documents and organize them into case files. In addition, you can annotate, highlight, markup, create flags and rearrange your binders with ease.

Reduce Paper Use

As well as saving time, paper, and money by sending documents via email, MyLitBag allows you to securely distribute your binders using email. Working remotely or traveling to meetings? MyLitBag matches the usability of paper with the convivence and ease of digital documents. The first eight binders sent with MyLitBag are completely complimentary. Additionally, there are monthly packages available for purchase on the MyLitBag website.

MyLitBag binders can be distributed in four convenient formats:

  • LIT COPY allows you to send fully functioning MyLitBag Binders to other users of MyLitBag.
  • PDF COPY format converts entire binders and annotations into a single PDF.
  • COMMENTS COPY format sends only pages with annotations.
  • COMMENTS ONLY format allows you to send only typed annotations.

Safe and Secure Documents 

Finally, say goodbye to rummaging through papers and losing documents with passwords and confidential information. A common question is, is this secure? In a world that has gone completely digital, it is much easier to get through password-protected sites. However, MyLitBag implements additional password requirements in order to access the app.

Have multiple Binders that need extra security? MyLitBag gives you the ability to set individual passwords for each of your binders within the app. Additionally, all binders can be individually password protected. Above all, kick those pesky filing cabinets to the curb and store all your information on your device or favorite cloud server. Whatever your needs may be, MyLitBag has you covered.

In today’s digital world, there are so many ways to help your office keep up with the times. Environmental responsibility is a task we all must take on. Luckily, we have many options available that are better for our environment and more responsible for carbon emissions. MyLitBag helps you maintain environmental responsibility as well as increase work efficiency and simplify your binders. Become more environmentally friendly by reducing paper use and digitizing your documents with MyLitBag.
