Tree Huggers Unite

Here is the issue of the day for you tree protectionists. Ready?

Cash Register Tapes!!!

Ol' BC just got back from the home improvements store (The blue one, not the orange one) from where he had purchased one item. One item for cash no less. While waiting for the young man to try to figure out the change (that's another post altogether), Ol' BC noticed the receipt was a foot long or more. What's up with that? Mrs. BC went to the drug store and brought home a receipt somewhere between 24 and 30 inches long. You guessed it. One item! At the local grocery (which happens to be a chain store) you get the monumental receipt PLUS a green one of specials and other values half again longer.

Here's the deal. If Al and the tree huggers would address this issue, it would be a terrific benefit to the trees being slaughtered for all these unnecessary receipts. Just think of all the carbon dioxide those trees could use and the oxygen they could give off. The earth should start cooling again in the near future as per its normal cycle. Al and the rest could take some credit here.

Just a thought.

You know, I have noticed the too long receipt thing myself! It is kind of absurd. Another way people could help the old earth along is to just bring their own bags to the grocery store. Stores could sell (or even give away) light canvas bags which are to be used for groceries. These bags are simply brought back and reused.
