Every week, my letterbox is stuffed FULL of junk mail. Advertising catalogues offering me stuff that I don’t need. I very rarely make purchasing decisions from these catalogues, so why get them in the first place?
I have decided to say “NO JUNK MAIL PLEASE” and get myself a no junk mail sticker. I honestly think even if it is only me doing this, I will save quite a bit of paper, so just imagine if you joined me too? …and how many trees we would save?
According to the Australian Conservation Foundation “on average, Australian households receive almost 1000 flyers, leaflets and catalogues in their letterboxes every year”
So I thought I would try and make it nice and easy for you, and give you a few simple ways to join me!
2. You can send the Australian Distributions Standards Board a stamped, self-addressed envelope and they will send you back a ‘no advertising material’ sticker, free of charge.
3. Purchase a no junk mail sticker from Eco Voice who will donate 50c from every sticker to Keep Australia Beautiful
4 . Talk to your neighbours and consider becoming a junk mail free street or apartment/unit block, organise stickers for everyone to become a junk mail free zone.
5. If you do enjoy getting your daily dose of junk mail, then either subscribe to receive it online or make sure you reuse and recycle it. Get your weekly toilet paper specials alerts via email by subscribing directly on your favourite store’s website. Or give your junk mail a second life as kitty-litter, garden mulch, insulation, packing paper and much more….
