Junk mail is something that every British household loathes and, every year, 4.4 billion pieces of direct mail are sent in the UK alone! With approximately 80% of this being thrown straight in the bin, the impact on the environment is huge!
Whilst there is no way to stop addressed mail being delivered, you can ‘opt out’ of door-to-door items being delivered by Royal Mail, in the UK. Head over to their website to find out more.
You can also help reduce the amount of junk you receive by unsubscribing to various websites and newsletters. Along with that, you can place a ‘No Junk Mail’ sticker on you front door or letter box!
If each household took these small actions, the environmental impact could be dramatically reduced!
