"No Junk Mail"
When I am canvasing my Territories for new Avon clients, I don't put brochures in mail boxes marked "No Junk Mail". Today I was collecting brochures that I had dropped off the other day and one person had written on the order form:
"Please do not use my mail box for your junk."
I'm genuinely curious for your responses... as they didn't have a "No Junk Mail" sticker on their mail box, is the above commented warranted? I'd really love to hear what you think... and it's okay if you take the side of the person who wrote that message!
NB: For those of you who are concerned about the amount of paper that is used to produce the Avon brochure hopefully these points will relieve you: 1.) I collect the brochures after dropping them off, so they can be reused to canvas more areas; 2.) Once the brochures have expired, I put them in the recycle bin so they can be re-manufactured; 3.) Avon brochures are printed on paper sourced from sustainably managed forests (see the "Avon Paper Promise" here)
