GO GREEN WITH NO PAPER RECEIPT

According to 'Please Kill the Paper Receipts,' 50% of forests have been cleared and 50% of that is for paper. This equates to 9,600,000 million trees cut down each year just to produce paper receipts.  Do I need the receipt?  Sometimes I do.  Most times, I do not.  I've given up getting gas receipts, I don't use 99% of any coupons that are printed on a receipt.  I pay my bills electronically. I can definitely significantly reduce the paper receipts I collect. 

Here's a poll to voice your opinion and a little humor to bring home the point.
