Stop printing paper COPY of all sales transactions done using plastic money

This petition had 11 supporters

Every time we use plastic money (Credict/debit card) for for any sales transaction, we get a paper receipt of the transaction. Why do we need it? 

In India alone there are more than 450 million such credit/debit card transaction every year.  And for each such transaction, the retailer takes out 2 printouts - one for himself and another for the customer.

Now in today's world, when all such transactions are immediately sent as SMS on the users phone, why do we need a paper trail.  The result - we could directly save >1500 Metric tons of paper. Also add-on savings will be for electricity, time, carbon footprint . . . .

With this petition I request everyone to ensure that you support me in saving paper and try to give our next generation a greener planet.
