Say yes to real mail

Free distribution mail and advertisements unnecessarily cover your doormat and fill up your mailbox. Attaching a “No advertisements, please” sticker to your mail slot is an easy way to reduce your paper waste.

Savings: You may miss a few good discounts – but this is probably a small risk that’s worth taking.

Remember this: It may be that you accept free distribution papers simply for want of something to read. Fortunately, it’s easy to find something good to read at your local library.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Not accepting unnecessary paper can reduce your carbon footprint by 0.5% per year. If a million Finns did this, it would save the equivalent of 5,000 carbon footprints per year.
