Information on how and why paying bills online, getting statements electronically, and setting up Direct Deposit can help the environment and reduce global warming. By switching to electronic bills, statements, and payments the average American household would, every year: save 6.6 pounds of paper, save 0.08 trees, not produce 171 pounds of greenhouse gases (equivalent to not driving 169 miles or preserving 24 square geet of forest from deforestation), not release 63 gallons of wastewater into the environment, and save 4.5 gallons of gasoline. If you have a computer anyway for other purposes, the environmental cost of paying bills electronically is only a minute amount of energy (and if you haven’t done so already, you can make that energy renewable by purchasing renewable energy certificates).
