Junk Mail

Rate this Entry
The Sunday issue of the Seattle Times weighs about 2 kg (4 lbs). One my way back from the curbside I routinely stop by the recycle bin and discard 1.5 Lbs of marketing brochures. Every day when I harvest the mailbox about 1/4 Lbs of unsolicited brochures end up in the same bin. What a waste of natural resources! The Finns are so smart. What do they do about unsolicited marketing material. Simple, the post office furnishes, free of charge, a sticker "NO ADS PLEASE" that you attach to the inside of your mailbox door. Simple, isn't it?
