Going paperless helps our planet. Trees are needed to make paper, but they also absorb carbon dioxide, which helps to slow climate change. Additionally, paper production releases toxins which contribute to acid rain and greenhouse gasses.


Online Banking and Other Paperless Options

To reduce your paper usage and contribute to the health of our planet, consider the following options:

  • Switch to online banking and bill paying, where everything is available electronically and nothing is printed.
  • E-subscriptions – Consider replacing your physical subscriptions with electronic versions to save paper and money.
  • Electronic storage and filing – With electronic document storage, you can enjoy seamless recordkeeping and retrieval without the need for paper.
  • Print consciously: Before printing a document, think about whether you really need a paper version. If you do, try to fit the content onto fewer sheets by adjusting the size.
  • An e-reader or tablet: Enjoy all the reading you want without using paper.
  • Reduce the use of disposable paper products – Substitute reusable alternatives for paper products whenever possible to reduce waste.
