Our world is in the middle of an environmental crisis, the amazon rainforest is burning and we are still proceeding to excessively cut down trees which increases CO₂ levels and contributes to global warming. A simple start to reducing the amount of trees we cut down is receipt printing. Nowadays, everyone has a phone. Therefore, E-Receipts are our best bet. Every receipt from your day-to-day purchases would ideally be emailed to you. This saves the company money on buying paper and also cuts down how much paper we waste. E-Receipts also make sure that you will always have your receipt with you instead of deeply searching for one piece of paper that you will throw away after the return, let alone the purchase. In the unlikely event that the consumer does not have access to an email, more eco-friendly alternatives will be available but should not be offered unless the consumer requests it. Thermal Paper is used to make receipts and is thoroughly coated in different chemicals. This is much more complex than then you would initially think as these receipts are specially made to be heat-resistant. E-Receipts are a great, beneficial alternative and will ultimately be a convenience to both the consumer and company.
