Apple, Target, and Ben & Jerry’s Top list for Sustainable Receipt Practices

Green America, a green economy organization, has released a new update to its Skip the Slip report on the impacts of paper receipts on forests and climate change, as well as how the chemicals used on receipt paper affect consumer and employee health. 

The report also features a scorecard that grades 33 major U.S. companies on their progress to address the waste and health risks associated with paper receipts. The Skip the Slip scorecard grades companies on their current progress, including whether they offer digital receipts or receipt paper free of BPA and BPS.

Apple, CVS, Target, and Ben & Jerry’s all get an “A” grade for offering digital only receipts. In order to receive an A or B, companies must demonstrate that receipts are both BPA and BPS free.
