babu wants to introduce you to a new way of shopping
Each year over 250 million gallons of oil, 10 million trees, and 1 billion gallons of water are consumed in the manufacture of receipts. After their production countless receipts are merely thrown away, generating a staggering 1.5 billion pounds of waste. Many customers do not want or keep their receipts. Our product cuts down on this waste by allowing businesses and users to exchange receipt information online.
With babu you can keep all the information
- and none of the paper.
Help us change this in 3 easy steps:
1. Download the app and register an account for babu.
3. Enjoy all the benefits of an online receipt software while helping the enviroment .
