Companies are Shortening Receipts to Help the Environment.
TRI-CITIES, Wash-- For most shoppers the majority of receipts from purchases make a mess in their wallets rather then being used for a return. This is causing some companies, like Lowes, to cut back on those long annoying receipts by reducing white space needed to list items and shortening the length of the tape.
A Lowes Corp. spokesman says it's more environmentally responsible and that their customers want shorter receipts. It's also reported that Target Corp. is following the trend and in the Tri-Cities, HAPO Credit Union has installed new printers for smaller receipts.
