By eliminating or reducing your need for paper invites, you help the environment by using less paper. Consider the paper you normally have to acquire. Invitation cards, envelopes, stamps, return envelope, return stamp, etc., By buying a smaller quantity of these, or by not buying them at all, you help the environment and even your wallet.
Lets face it, some of our friends, family, and guests may not respond right away to an invitation, they may have even made up their mind, and will be there in the front row, but simply did not submit their RSVP. By doing paperless RSVPs you can quickly send reminders, and when ready they can submit it in just a few clicks, without having to search for papers or mail their correspondence.
