one e-ticket saves how many pounds of paper

    Maybe none.

    Wells Fargo Bank, after years of upgrading their computer systems, did a study to see how much efficiency had improved. The answer was: Not at all.

    It’s a common misassumption that everything digital is better in every way than everything that is physical or that is analog. But whereas a tiny piece of paper costs a fraction of a cent, an electronic transaction can be quite expensive. To make the machines that create the e-ticket, to create the electricity that drives the machines, to potentially cause long-term storage costs? All and any of that could involve paper production. Wrapping, advertising, shipping containers, etc.

    Finally, for purposes of safety and records, electronic transactions sometimes need to be duplicated in paper form. In that case an electronic transaction could waste more paper than a strictly paper one.
