Go green – Umm really!

with 2 comments

Pick up any statement from a utility or financial service provider and you’ll read pleas urging their ‘valued’ customers to subscribe to email statements and hence save a tree. Noble cause you’d say. I agree. And hence I did whatever in the Tree’s name they asked me to do to subscribe to email statements. The result – well I did start getting email statements but the paper statements never stopped!

The culprits (in the order of their ‘plea strength’) – Vodafone, Airtel, Reliance, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank. These are the service providers where I explicitly requested for paper statements to be stopped. The one surprise exception here is Citibank but that’s perhaps because the banking product that I have (Suvidha) was never designed for paper statements.
