We have noticed that we do not look at junk mail and goes directly to the bin or ends up into the streets if not posted well into the letterbox. As an action we will attach a label ‘No Junk Mail’ to the letter box on 16th Nov 2018. We will check the amount of junk mail received during the month of October and we can calculate an approximate amount of recycling waste reduced from our HQ every year.
We are encouraging members to stick ‘No Junk Mail’ label to their letterbox so we reduce paper and plastic waste.
An article will be written on the Scoutkeeper news where this reaches around 8000 scout members and helpers.
A video of this action will be shared in our member’s facebook page on 17-Nov-2018 reaching around another 300 people.
