Its time to take out cash and
Going to the ATM can be quite fast
After receiving your funds try hitting no receipt for fun
You’ll help millions of trees enjoy a few more days in the sun

Banking Earth Friendly:

  • ATM receipts are one of the top creators of litter on the entire planet.  If everyone in the country left their bank receipts in the machine, it would save a roll of paper more than two billion feet long.  That’s enough to circle the equator fifteen times!
  • Stop using deposit or withdrawal slips, instead try going to the ATM for those banking needs.  Using an ATM can save time and money allowing you to zip in and out.
  • If you're looking to take it a step further, stop receiving monthly bank statements that you get in the mail.  If every household tried this the money saved could send over seventeen thousand recent high school graduates to a public university for a year.

When visiting the ATM  say no to receipts.  Check your balance at the ATM, online or over the phone relieving yourself of the need for receipts.
