Do post offices waste paper?



  1. 0 Votes

    The argument could be made that the entire national postal service is a waste of paper, considering that we can send most documents over e-mail. The practical reasons for its continued existence are as one way (of several) to send objects, as a back-up method of communication, and a way to send documents considered too important for e-mail or that need a signature (although there are fax machines for this). The biggest total waste of paper in the postal service is probably junk mail, which is often printed on glossy paper that’s more difficult to recycle. Outlawing junk mail, in addition to being a possible violation of business’ right to free speech, would send the price of stamps way up. This is why many people support an optional “Do Not Mail” list for Americans. Check their site out at the link below!
