I don’t really have much to say other than I am so happy. I am so happy to find out that you have to specifically ask for a printed receipt each time you buy something at an Apple Store. It is the norm for Apple customers to receive their receipts by e-mail. How wonderful! Zero-waste receipts.
Where do you go that you can avoid a receipt? And I don’t mean that they throw it in the garbage for you. I mean that it can just not exist.
p.s. two places I frequent that don’t print receipts unless asked are my local Starbucks and The Soap Dispensary
“I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughnut… I don’t need a receipt for the doughnut. I give you money and you give me the doughnut, end of transaction. We don’t need to bring ink and paper into this. I can’t imagine a scenario that I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. To some skeptical friend, ‘Don’t even act like I didn’t get that doughnut, I’ve got the documentation right here… It’s in my file at home. …Under “D”.’”
