AT&T asks customers to adopt paperless billing

AT&T is asking its customer base to help it reach the goal of converting a million accounts to paperless billing through its PayItGreen initiative.

To show its seriousness about its PayItGreen paperless billing initiative, AT&T has launched a promotion with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant a tree for every customer that opts for paperless billing.

The telecom giant estimates that if one million customers converted to paperless billing, it could help save 400,000 pounds of paper and avert up to six million pounds of greenhouse gases. What's more, AT&T says that the paperless goal would also prevent four million gallons of waste water from being discharged into waterways annually.
