Sustainability tips for consumers
As an end-user, there are several ways to contribute to eco printing and sustainable mailing. Here are some practical tips to help lessen your impact on the environment according to Canada Post.
Recycle your mail
Recycling can significantly reduce the amount of material deposited in landfills. Many municipalities have expanded the types of items being accepted for recycling, including windowed envelopes, magazines, glossy flyer paper and catalogues. Confidential documents can be shredded then recycled.
Include a return address
Get the mail you send out returned to you if the receiving address is incorrect and avoid having to create and send a new copy.
Address change when you move
Use Mail Forwarding when you move or temporarily relocate to a new address. Rest assured that you’re not missing infrequent mailings such as tax slips, licenses or health card renewals and avoid unnecessarily printing duplicate mail.
Get your bills and statements online
Organize your money statements and bills in one place, for free, with epost™. It’s convenient, secure and environmentally friendly.
