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.

    Je ne délivre plus de reçus papier dans ma boulangerie, mon système de paiement me permet de l'envoyer par sms ou mail et si la personne veut un ticket je lui en délivre un par écrit. De toute façon, j'ai constaté qu'au final 95% des clients s'en moquent du ticket.

    It's hard to imagine this is just now being proposed in the US. I have been refusing to accept paper receipts for years. The amount of paper that just ends up in the trash is obscene. They are a waste of resources and a source of pollution.

    I always said “no receipt please,” but Marshalls always printed receipts anyway. Boycott them?

    Just provide any kind of receipt if it's asked for! BTW, was that guy the receipt mascot because he was late?

    Of course why is it so difficult to understand. You can pay via electronic medium why can't the receipts be electronic 🥴

    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.
