I'm all for going green. I want to do my part to reduce my carbon footprint. I recycle--plastic, glass, cardboard. I carry reusable bags to the grocery and back. I even drive a hybrid vehicle, a Prius. Recently, my financial accounts, as well as the company for whom I work, have made it so that I can reduce paper (and thus potentially save some trees, etc). In other words, they are also going green!
Sounds great, doesn't it? How can I argue with that? Except that it only reduces their paper use. Mine has now gone up if I wish to have copies of my paycheck stub (I already have direct deposit) or my financial records for the month. Yes, I can view them online, but if I want documentation (especially for tax purposes), then I have to print out all the paperwork for myself. I'm hardly going green in this case. C'est la vie!
I will, of course, continue to do the little things mentioned above, but...
