A week ago, I received my welcome packet full of paper crap, I don’t need or want. And today I received even more paper crap I don’t want or need.
Even if some of the paper used came from recycled sources, and I throw all the stuff sent into the recycling (which I did) energy is still used in the recycling process, and waste is spent. Not to mention the gas consumed for the mailman to deliver all this.
The welcome packet had a 300 page green phonebook. I did with this the same thing I do with any phonebook I’m sent, I tossed it directly into the recycling bin.
Coming Soon – more paper crap that I’m going to throw out.
A thank you letter letting me know all the paper they will be sending me along with my subscription.
Of course it would have to include an ask for money.
And a new member survey. This survey, by the way, was so long that my scanner couldn’t scan the whole page.
An envelope to mail the survey back.
Today’s mail had a letter that could have easily been included in the welcome packet. It’s blotted out, but they also spelt my name totally wrong.
Today also included a return envelope, even though nothing was sent that needed to be returned.
There are many things in this world that piss me off; religious nuts, people who own little yelping dogs, republicans, and up with all them are companies that use “green” and “environmental causes” to make a buck all the while not following what they preach.
