Padua, May 16 - A green initiative announced on Thursday by Padua mail services aims at cutting down on the province's carbon footprint and at facilitating the tedious task of paying bills, postal authorities said. Residents in the Veneto city of Padua and nearby towns of Monselice and Citadella will be able to pay their utilities from the comfort of their own home, using a postal-issued credit card or pre-paid card, directly to the postman. By booking the service through a call center or online, residents can pay the mailman, equipped with a handheld computer. The same high-tech postal worker will also arrive driving an electrically powered four-wheeled vehicle that boasts of "zero emissions" and holds a charge for 50 kilometers.
