Apple IPhone Itemized Bills by AT&T - Exploiting the Environment

As hundreds of thousands of people buy the latest mobile gadget from Apple, thousands of trees will be cut down. may wonder, what does the new Apple iPhone have to do with the environment or cutting down trees? Well, it turns out that AT&T, which is the only mobile carrier that offers the IPhone, offers a very ellaborate billing statement which can be in access of 150 pages per subsciber. Add these pages up for hundred of thousands (possibly) millions of subscibers and you can imagine how many trees will be needed just to print these detailed billing statements. Despite the fact that AT&T offers all its mobile subscibers an option to view statements online, an annual estimate of 70,000 trees will be cut down for the IPhone Billing Statements by the "environmentally conscious" corporation.
