So. Much. Paper!
According to the EPA, the United States uses about 69 million tons of paper and paperboard per year. It takes about 24 trees to create one ton of paper, so we’re talking about 1,656,000,000 trees per year destroyed to create paper in just one year for the United States. It’s important to know that the small decisions we make can have a large impact! Electing to receive your paycheck stubs electronically, rather than a paper check is one small action each and every one of us can do to positively impact our environment.
How to update your paycheck preferences
