AT&T Asks Customers to Give Up Paper Bills
AT&T is challenging all its customers — including wireless, wireline and U-Verse subscribers — to eliminate their paper bills and switch to online billing. AT&T said it will plant a tree for each customer who chooses to go paperless, and will plant up to one million trees. AT&T says that if a million customers make this move, it will help save 400,000 pounds of paper, avoid 6 million pounds of greenhouse gases, and prevent 4 million gallons of wastewater from discharging into lakes, streams, and rivers in a year. Customers will be able to choose from several areas across the U.S. needing reforestation in which to have their tree planted. There is no cost to the consumer to switch to paperless billing.

This has NOTHING to do with saving the earth...
Keep your paper bills people, don't buy into this false "Green" Movement. If you have zero use for a paper bill then setup paperless billing, otherwise keep it.
Your not a better or worse person for choosing one or the other. Your not helping Mother Earth by choosing paperless, so get your head outta your crotch and stop smelling your own farts.
