A solution to the paper problem that doesn’t just paper over the problem

December 23rd, 2011

As you might guess, I’m a folder not a crusher. I’ve been delicately sliding gifts out of their festive dress and folding the useable remains for so many years, it’s instinctive.

The bows go in a bag to be reused. Paper gets folded and smoothed, destined to wrap increasingly smaller packages in future years. Gift bags are handled respectfully. Without telltale writing they can soldier on for years. Same for a few sturdy gift boxes, courtesy of a friend who used to send Harry and David. Those come out every year. And we remember our departed friend fondly.
At one time, all this anal retentive fussing made me seem like a nut, a wrapping-paper-saver hoarder, ready for a profile on that reality show about people who stash stuff away until they can’t walk in their house.

Americans having a hard time parting with paper billing statements

January 18th, 2010

From Green Right Now Reports

Despite monthly reminders from banks, phone companies, utilities, credit card providers and just about every kind of business that issues a monthly statement, a large percentage of the populace remains reluctant to go completely electronic. According to a report by Javelin Strategy & Research, nearly one-third of all households still receive at least one statement in both paper and electronic form.

The report — Green Billing 2010: How to Turn Off More Paper Statements as Consumer Attitudes and Alerts Technologies Change — says that institutions are making progress in eliminating paper statements, but going remains slow. Companies still spend billions of dollars on postage and paper, while printed statements pose an additional risk of fraud to the consumer.
