In their regular daily route on bicycle, the Handy family crosses paths with a courier from the company Putrefaction Express, owned by Darkhand. The courier is none other than Hand Slap, who is polluting the city up and down due to the use of his motorcycle which consumes putrillio. Another citizen shows up who is as irked as the Handy family. He is Openhand, a young entrepreneur whose principles and ethics are completely opposite those of Darkhand. Together, they will create a company, Ecoexpress, which recognizes modern needs, that is, that will use new technologies to send messages by way of scanning and sending by internet. Openhand, attempting to open his business proves that there is a huge amount of bureaucratic papers that could be done directly on the internet: which would save unnecessary mail. Matthew has come to a similar conclusion after talking to John Stickyfingers who has to fill lots of forms associated with his store, which he has to send out personally or use Putrefaction Express. Matthew and Openhand decide to propose to the mayor to digitize all the administrative forms through their company at a much more reasonable cost. The mayor is very excited about the idea and decides to immediately accept.
