If you are a frequent visitor of this blog, you have probably noticed that I am a mom who tries to live as green as possible. I work at segregating our trash, I let my daughters draw on recycled papers, I keep cartons and such for future usage and I teach our girls the importance of what we are doing.
There are many things in this world that we end up wasting, top things that I hate see go to to waste are water and paper. I still let the girls play during bath-time but I make sure that we use as little water as possible for their play. As for the paper, that explains why I hate flyers and leaflets.
I hate flyers and leaflets because their distribution is not targeted. Since it is such, people end up throwing whatever paper is handed to them in the trash bin. These people can easily say no as a person/agent hands a flyer but I do not get it why they do not. I do that almost all the time, specially if I know that the flyer contains something that I am completely uninterested.
Recently though, I have been accepting flyers about real-estate and cars. Well, not that we have money to buy those but I save them for future use. And oh, someone left an ecasino guide leaflet by our car’s windshield the other week at the grocery. I kept that too for future use. Who knows I might try that and get lucky.
I hope that people will learn to say no and not accept things they are not interested in. It will not bring trash to their homes and it will save Mother Earth.
