SACRA­MENTO, CA — on Jan 8, 2019 Cal­i­for­nia As­sem­bly Mem­bers voted in fa­vor a new bill that would make the state the first in the U.S. to man­date that re­tail­ers must of­fer dig­i­tal re­ceipts as the de­fault to cus­tomers start­ing Jan. 1, 2022.

Cus­tomers will still be able to re­quest a pa­per re­ceipt in lieu of a dig­i­tal re­ceipt.

Re­flect­ing the fo­cus of Green Amer­ica’s “Skip the Slip” cam­paign, the bill, in­tro­duced by As­sem­bly mem­ber Phil Ting (D-San Fran­cisco), will help pro­tect con­sumers and work­ers from the tox­ins that often coat pa­per-based re­ceipts, while also cre­at­ing sub­stan­tial en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits.
