Quick Tip: Receipts and Snail Mail – Just say No

When it comes to saving paper … here’s an oldie but a goodie .

Say ‘no thanks’ to receipts from the ATM,  the coffee shop, cabs, drug stores – anywhere you can! I try to let the salesperson know I don’t need one before they ask, so they can forgo printing all together. (If I must get a receipt I use the back of it to write quick to-do lists on. )

These days most of us are paying bills online. But, what about those catalogues you still receive that you don’t even glance at? Opt-out! Send customer service an email or give them a quickie phone call. Your mailbox will be less cluttered, and you’re passing on an important conservation message.

  1. I never ever ever understood why people take receipts from the ATM machine only to have a quick glance at them and then throw them in the garbage … kinda sad.
