It might seem trivial, but it sure is wasteful. . .

I was contacted the other day about a software company that is trying to "Kill the Paper Receipt." I finally had a moment to go and read more about it. I know I have a lot of really obnoxious paper receipts in my life. If I go buy one loaf of bread and PAY CASH for it, no, I do not need a receipt, thank you. And, if I buy something big somewhere, like Costco, isn't it much easier if it is just on my Costco card that I bought said big item and now I want to bring it back? Hmmm, think about it, if the cashier happens to ask you if you need a receipt, say no.

Ok, I just had to include the video because it made me laugh! Have a good weekend--Teresa

WOW those facts are scary. Who would have thought that a little receipt would take down so many trees a year, and use so much fuel. WOW this does need our attention and something needs to be done!

Thanks for sharing!

Just the other day my little boy and I went to the post office and the lady asked me If I want a receipt and I said NO! Even at the grocery store here in our small town. Little things help! :) I don't even buy paper plates!
