Paperless Billing: Enroll To Go Green
Since many of us have been home a lot more than usual lately here on the South Shore due to continued effects of COVID-19, we may have turned some attention to our homes; specifically, by creating ways to make our day-to-day life at home easier.
There’s been a lot of focus on de-cluttering, organization, and attention to those long-put-off projects. Frank Lamparelli is happy to jump in on those endeavors as well. If you’ve seen past mailed invoices from us taking up space on your desk, you’re in luck. You can enroll in paperless billing! It’s not only easier for you; it’s easier on the planet.
Going paperless is eco-friendly
The United States Postal Service reports that Americans receive more than 13 billion bills through the mail each year.
Think about how much paper that involves! There’s the bill itself, inserts, the envelope it came in, the return envelope, the check you write, and the stamp you use to mail it.
If your household switched to electronic billing, statements, and bill payment, here is what you’ll be saving each year:
- 6.6 pounds of paper
- 0.08 trees
- 24 square feet of forest
- 63 gallons of water
- 4.5 gallons of fuel
Imagine the positive environmental impact if everyone did this.
Other benefits of going paperless
According to the Financial Freedom Project, the average American household can save more than $145 in postage costs by going paperless. Then add in savings from avoiding late fees because you can always find your bill, and from not having to use as many checks. More savings come from not having as much paper to recycle.
Simplify in other ways
