some reason every time a company tells me they will email me my receipt, I
cringe a little inside. I think, “Well okay but why don’t you just print it out
now. However despite my feelings I nod, smile and say, “Okay great” and go
about my day. Then I start thinking about all the articles I have read about
the pros/cons of ‘going paperless’. Well
I am one of those people that keep receipts for a while to look back and see
what cost what and how much I spent.
man, do those people even exist anymore? Well that’s me and I have no idea why
I do it or what good I think is going to come of it, it’s just something I do.
The same as reading on a tablet, you will not catch me reading on any type of
device for fun. I would much rather have the book there, physically in my hand
flipping through and getting excited to see what’s on the next page instead of endlessly
scrolling or thumbing my life away on some device.
side story and a little off the hinges but I am a Web Marketing Specialist and
I can’t stand to be on any electronic devices outside of work. I know crazy,
are my thoughts on going paperless outside of my crazy obsession with receipts
and paperback books: paper is biodegradable. Paper is made from trees a
sustainable resource. Trees provide jobs. And paper can be recycled. I don’t
understand the super aggressive articles and advertisements saying if you don’t
go paperless you’re a hypocritical tree killer. We are all entitled to our own
opinion and that’s great but it seems to me like more than not people are
swaying towards the GO PAPER side. According to this Two Sided North America
article, results of a new survey conducted by Toluna Inc. show that a majority
of Americans want to retain a choice for paper options rather than be forced
into “digital-only” communications.
what most people think and why: The majority of U.S. consumers value paper and
disagree with digital-only communications
