Paper receipts cause silent environmental havoc.
Deceitfully innocent looking paper receipts contribute to a significant amount of trees cut every year. It breaks a heart to see a 20c candy bought at a retail store generates a 30cm or longer paper receipt. Do we simply ignore the paper receipts?
We are reasonably sure that all your shopping receipts this year have been discarded, but if you need them, as in really need them, you can find them in the nearest landfill. No, seriously!
It takes 12 trees to make 1 ton of unrecycled paper and most receipts are non-recyclable. Every year, in the UK, consumers dispose of 7300 tons of receipts in the bin that’s 87000 trees to supply receipts paper in the UK alone.
In the USA, this number stands at 10 million Trees a year. You may hear people say these trees are grown for paper purposefully, but these plantations replace forests as there is commercial value and demand for paper. Let’s not cheat ourselves anymore. We need to start acting now rather than finding reasons not to.
Consumers, on average, come in contact with receipts at least 12 times in a week according to a recent study. Most of these receipts are coated with Toxic BPA and other chemicals to get the print to stay on the paper. The health impacts of these toxins range from causing diabetes, thyroid to fetal development issues in pregnant women.
Climate Actions & Legislations.
A lot of countries have banned toxins on paper receipts but many still allow toxic receipt rolls. Several countries have made providing receipt mandatory which makes it inevitable but not unbeatable.
Let’s join together to beat toxic landfilling paper receipts!
