Direct Deposit Green Facts

Payroll software direct deposit
is not only a convenience for the employee and employer but it also benefits the environment. This is one way businesses and their employees can help the environment in one easy step. Each pay day you can make a small contribution to the environment without thinking about it. These small contribution really add up over time.

One individual employee, paid with a paper, can save pounds of paper per year, avoid the release of multiple gallons of wastewater into the environment and avoid pounds of greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere by switching to direct deposit. This is just one individual employee, the numbers for a business, that employs many people, rise exponentially they can save hundreds of pounds of paper, avoid the release of thousands of gallons of wastewater into the environment and hundreds of pounds of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere per year.

If those U.S. employees who have access to Direct Deposit but choose not use it, would opt to be paid by direct deposit, they would be:

Saving 11,082,971 pounds of paper
Avoiding the release of 105,709,380 gallons of waste water into the environment
Saving 4,105,889 gallons of gas
Avoiding the release of 31,581,675 pounds of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere.

This amount of greenhouse gas is equivalent to:
1,345,379 trees planted (and grown for 10 years)
13,756,978 square feet of forest preserved
