eco-friendly in-name only?

I just received a post-card in the mail from my employer stating that in January they are launching their “eco-pay” program, whereby paper pay-stubs will no longer be mailed and employees will receive statements online. This is all designed to help the environment. Did anyone stop to think about the huge waste mailing a post card to over 100,000 people creates? I wonder how many trees had to die, and how much electricity went into printing the post-card, not to mention the petroleum used by the post-office to cart the cards all over the country.

I guess it’s okay becuase it’s printed on recycled paper that they ask you to recycle again…
