Isn’t email ‘green’?

I got a complaint from a person who applied for a job with the council.

As the weeks went by and no reply he went to the offices at Bank End in Bideford to ask why, if he hadn’t got the job, they didn’t tell him, as they had his email address and his mobile number.

The answer to his asking was they didn’t send out letters because they are green-orientated and don’t like to waste paper.

But they could phone him or email – there’s no need for a letter. To me, and the way I was brought up, to not reply in some form is bad manners and very impolite.
