One small reason to get direct deposit of tax refunds is to save paper. But really, it’s saving gas for postal trucks, wear and tear on vehicles & machines etc etc with the people’s money.
This is the 3rd printed, mailed, hand delivered snail mail letter received since January 20, 2021.
This letter had a minimum 36 million letters.
The last two had a minimum 230 million EACH.
That’s a minimum of 496 million envelopes, 496 million pieces of paper, 496 million deliveries by gasoline powered vehicles, millions of miles of wear, millions of pounds of ink, millions of pounds of waste that are going to landfills. Oh, I forgot about the dozens of cubic yards added to every landfill in the United States.
The point here is - if this is the admin that’s fighting climate change - they have a funny way of showing it.
