Online Bills to Offset Carbon

Bills bills bills A mailbox full of bills is already a bummer without the guilt of your paper trail's environmental impact. Consider ditching the endless hard-copy invoices this year in favor of electronic bills, statements, and payments to save around 6.6 pounds of paper.

PayItGreen Coalition's Green Calculator estimates the environmental toll your paper bills take and the difference it'd make if you switched. For the average family, opting for online banking and bill paying equates to not driving 169 miles or planting two trees and letting them grow for ten years.

While you're at it, save paper, time, and money this tax season by filing online through free services like Turbo Tax, TaxACT, or the IRS's Free File. It'll save you from having too much in common with the annually awkward Cathy cartoon.
