Ever go to the shop and get asked if you want an e-receipt? Most people think this is a way for the company to send you information surrounding new offers. Sometimes this is the case but what most people don’t know is that this small change could have a big impact on the environment. 

In the UK more than 11 billion receipts are printed every years. Most of these can not be recycled due to the plastic coating used within the paper. Not just this, but it takes over 250 gallons of oil, 10 million trees and 1 million gallons of water to produce the UK’s consumption of receipts a year. 

Next time you are asked if you would like a e-receipt think again!

I propose that all supermarkets should offer receipts to be connected to their loyalty cards and can be accessed online. As well as small shops having the option to decline a receipt for a pint of milk or some bread.
