As it turns out, the Kindle isn’t Jeff Bezos’ only weapon against dead tree wastefulness. His venture capital outfit, Bezos Expeditions, along with Mohr Davidow Ventures dropped $5.25 million on a “paperless transaction” startup called doxo that plans to make it simple for consumers to manage their bills online. Besides sparing folks a trip to the post office, doxo reckons that $35 billion is spent annually on printing and mailing bills and statements annually, and cutting  just 30 percent of that activity would also save 150 million gallons of gas and cut 3 million tons of GHG emissions.
