Unusual Thought for the Day

This is not on the normal line of topics for this blog, but I came across these statistics the other day which I thought were quite interesting.  They are from the PayItGreen.org site, a site promoting paperless billing.  I’m not turning the blog into an environmental theme, but, if the statistics are true, it is a point worth making.  Here is their quote:

If only 20% of U.S. households switched to online bills, statements and payments, the impact every year would:

  • Avoid using 102,945,600 gallons of gasoline
  • Avoid 1,960,402 tons of greenhouse gas
  • Save 150,939,615 pounds of paper
  • Save 1,811,275 beautiful trees
  • There is obviously more to consider in switching to paperless than saving “cost of goods” for the company you owe.
