9 days to Earth Day! Green tip #2: Eliminate paper invoices

April 13, 2010

Switch to electronic billing and statements and see the difference you
can make! If you started sending 20 monthly bills electronically, you
could conserve the following in one year:

  • 7 lbs of paper
  • 117 lbs of greenhouse gases prevented – equivalent to 118 miles not
    driven in your car and 6 gallons of gasoline not consumed
  • 21 sq feet of forest preserved from deforestation
  • 64 gallons of wastewater prevented from discharging into lakes, streams,
    and rivers
  • 2 gallons of gas saved from delivery of mail

Also, request electronic invoices from your vendors too!
