The environmental impact of paper receipts

Should we switch to digital receipts? This politician in California has just introduced "Skip the slip", a bill trying to do just that.

    But there are so many people who don't carry or have electronic devices laptop/phone or tab etc. So it will be difficult to Check bill and items.

    Stop using plastic on packaging, on vehicles, car parts, household appliances, pens and felt tip pens,computers,mobile phones etc etc etc I prefer a receipt as proof of purchase and the store want you to show them on exit, need for returns and check against account. If not printed on back I use for notes. and hey many countries have plastic money. I dont always use (plastic) card and there too many other things containing with plastic and tell the countries who are denuding the world of trees,rain forests etc etc etc to stop then we may get somewhere; they will not... That politician should get back to the job he is employed to do by his employers, the tax payers of California, to sort out the mess the country is in, fix the economy, create jobs. Say no if you dont want a receipt but don't deny me my right to have one should I wish.

    Besides saving water, etc.. It also "saves" personal and financial data. Somebody gets rich off it.

    Went to CVS 2 days ago. I had 4 prescription items to get the receipt, and I shit you not, was 3 feet long. I needed the first 5 inches of it. This is the same company that now owns AETNA health insurance. let that sink in a moment.

    we have the choice at our major supermarkets here in australia to not get a receipt. We do not get a digital copy but for food i have no issue with that.

    Yup actually I would like a system that is tied to my card that automatically emails me the receipt every time a transaction is processed that would enable to better keep track of fraud and manage finance and provide records should anyone like the IRS need them. Shouldn't be to hard to implement.
