Verizon removes anti-paper (e-billing) green claims from its website
Dear Laura
Over the past three years Two Sides has been writing letters to Verizon encouraging them to change inaccurate and unsubstantiated environmental messaging used to promote electronic services over print and paper. (See our blog on this topic).
So it was great to see that Verizon made major changes to their website recently, removing each of the questionable green claims we had pointed out. We hope this change in messaging will also spread to other channels, especially printed materials, and that Verizon will use the messaging reset to consider the sustainable features of print and paper.
Have a look at these before-and-after shots of the Verizon website.
Same day photoshoot ;)

Worth the investigation to Assume nothing or risk:Making an Assume I encourage SME colleagues in all industry investigate for the real offer of security & privacy needed in business communication-we’re all connected. Can’t guarantee the world, can place restrictives which enhance Data as an Asset vs. Data Liability
Canada Post
Financial results for Canada Post Corporation 2015. Transition from billions to millions is the indicator, we still have a lot of paper communication for privacy, legal & reasons of Choice. Catalogues & Direct Mail offers remain the highest ROI from advertising dollar’s. An integral part of our advertising & sales media. We read, search, often on-line purchase & wait for that parcel.
