    In the interest of becoming eco-friendly, increasing amounts of retailers are offering their customers more environmentally conscious options during their shopping experience. One of the best technqiues to conserve resources that I’ve encountered is this option to have your receipts emailed to you instead of having it printed out in-store. Apart from the Gap, Apple, Urban Outfitters, Old Navy, and Banana Republic are some retailers that offer the option of having your receipt emailed to you.

    This is a very useful way of conserving paper. Many people end up throwing out their receipts almost immediately after a purchase, so it would make more sense to send someone a receipt which would only be printed out if a return is needed.

    Offering e-mail receipts is a growing trend among stores because it is a way to conserve paper, thus helping PR and the environment. Whole Foods, a known healthy and organic supermarket, is one of the stores to do this. Other clothing stores besides the Gap are Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters.
