The Ecofont is an environmentally friendly font which could cut your printer’s ink consumption by up to 20%.

It was developed in The Netherlands by SPRANQ, who found a way to leave tiny circles blank within individual letters to reduce the amount of ink used but still maintain readability. They say “After Dutch holey cheese, there is now a Dutch font with holes as well”. - ecofont

The font looks similar to Verdana and works best used at smaller sizes, 9 or 10 point, when the holes are virtually invisible.

Of course, the best way to save ink is to print as little as possible, but there are times when you have to use the printer, so this could be another small way to reduce consumption..
