Default Green online banking?

The other day I decided to open up a high-yield savings account so I could start saving money for the future/taxes, and when poking around I found this place: https://www.shorebankdirect.com/

They seemed up front and serious about their mission, so this is where I've ended up opening an account. Anyone else interested in such stuff? Are there any other "green" banks out there?

I get discounts through Citizens Bank for doing online bill pay and statements. I like not having any mail coming to my door anyways. I have an automated payment system going with an email 3 days before anything is paid so I can verify the amounts are proper. It's easier to keep your money than it is to get it back

In Canada I know that Scotiabank allows you to do all your banking online as well as paying bills and what not. I'm also signed up for something that sends all of my bills to me online so that I don't get a tone of mail, then I just pay off my online bills...online. It's just that easy.

I was actually going to post something about the citizen's bank thing, I think I'll have to enroll in it, since I do everything online already through them (as does ER and EM, ). Will post something about this later once I've set it up.

If you sign up for Citizen's Bank's green sense program, be forewarned, you have to get and activate new debit/atm cards.

I really can't remember when I last received a bank statement in the mail. For that matter, I can't remember the last time I visited a bank teller either. All my bills are taken care of online - or at least I think they are. My wife processes the bills.
