I’m becoming more aware of zero waste methods and wanting to change my lifestyle around it. The thing that resonated with me is that this eco-friendly lifestyle can start from your front door! Environmental issues such as biodiversity loss and climate change are happening RIGHT NOW and planet earth couldn’t be more obvious in asking us to make a change.
I have always been frustrated with the sheer amount of junk mail that I receive and that my recycling compromises mostly of leaflets and flyers that fall through my door, not even addressed to me! I’ve been noticing online from zero waste change-makers, that having a “no junk mail” sticker outside your front door can make such a huge difference in reducing the amount of junk mail falling through the letterbox and reducing the amount reaching recycling! That would save me a lot of time of picking them up and putting them in the recycling bin which just wastes paper and resources.
I want to test this out and see what difference it makes. I’m going to update you of the progress – I have a feeling it will be positive!
If everyone were to put this sticker outside their house, then just think of how great it would be to not see junk mail in your letterbox! Something so simple that everything can do will save you time and save the planet!
Have you done this already and seen a change in the reduction in junk mail? Let me know below, I’d like to hear about it.
