Welcome to Monday. This week I have chosen something a little different. Here at Kainga we are fairly enviromentally friendly. We recycle reuse and reduce as much as possible. Two Christmas's ago I was disgusted at the amount of junk mail we were getting in our letterbox. One toy catalogue from Big W weighed an astronomical amount,we don't have small children so this was an absolute waste especially seeing it was printed on glossy paper. It took a couple of months for me to convince Ian that we really didn't need that junk mail. How often did we buy something from them? I know Ian was a bit reluctant because he would miss out on the hardware catalogues,but guess what they are all on-line. Finding a "no junk mail" sign was impossible so we found "no circulars" which works a treat. I am so happy that we don't get that junk mail especially after watching the ABC news at lunch time a few weeks ago,there was an item showcasing that the average Australian household receives 23kilos of junk mail per year. Yes the junk mail may be going somewhere else instead of our household but if everyone that looks at this blog puts up a sign just imagine what the difference would be. If you have time gather up some papers to weigh 23 kilos and you will be surprised to see how much it is. So on this Monday I am happy to have a 'no circulars' sign on our letterbox.
