I can’t count the number of times I’ve gone into a store, purchased something small. The cashier gets my change and asks if I want my receipt. I say “No thanks”, and in the trash it goes.
It wasn’t until an email I received that I contemplated how wasteful this was. It’s not just me, it’s most people that don’t even take their receipts, and if they take them they will likely end up in the trash or wadded up at the bottom of a purse.
There is a poll up on this site HERE asking your thoughts on paper receipts, along with some great information. I encourage you to head over, give it a read and share your thoughts.
I think it’s a great subject. I can’t believe that I’ve never considered the impact. Imagine all that could be saved form eliminating something that most people don’t use anyways!
