The Environmental Toll of Paper Receipts

Keep all your receipts,’ Australians are generally well accustomed to the importance of keeping receipts to substantiate your expenses. Not only are they crucial for product related issues, such as repairs or refunds, but they are furthermore imperative in maximising tax refunds, especially during tax time.

At Crunchr, we’re on a mission to ignite a green revolution! Join us in making a positive shift by embracing the future of receipts – the fantastic world of electronic receipts, or as we fondly call them, e-receipts!

The small changes we can make to save the planet contribute to some significant environmental benefits, as revealed by a recent report from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).

According to the UTS analysis, Australia churns out a staggering 10.6 billion paper receipts annually, each coated with toxic chemicals, making them non-recyclable and environmentally harmful. The environmental impact extends beyond the receipts themselves, delving into the supply chain.

The production of these paper receipts exacts a toll on the environment, requiring 150,462 trees, 1.56 million litres of water, 96,227 tonnes of carbon, and 104.7 million kilowatts of energy annually. In contrast, a digital delivery system would consume no trees or water and only 7.193 million kilowatts of energy, generating just 3037 tonnes of carbon.

In light of these pressing environmental concerns, highlighted in the report generously funded by the CSIRO, there is a collective call for the widespread adoption of digital receipts. At Crunchr, we offer a revolutionary solution to this issue. By transitioning to our receipt app individuals can significantly reduce their environmental impact while still enjoying the benefits of effective expense management. Join us in this green revolution and embrace the future of receipts with Crunchr!
