As someone in the newspaper business, I take my fair share of criticism for ‘killing trees.” After all, the news is printed on paper. However, I have yet to see the outcry from environmentalists taking issue with junk mail.
Or how about those to kill trees in the hopes of reaching the right person, by sending multiple versions of the same letter to several people at one place.
Case in point – Today’s mail contained identical letters to the following individuals:
David Specht (me)
Clint Land (hasn’t worked here since 2003)
Jerry Byrd (Sports Editor)
Randy Brown (Ad Manager)
The sender of these letters: The National Arbor Day Foundation
Where’s the outcry?
Where’s the defender of these poor defenseless trees who gave up their lives for mass mailings?
Ridiculous isn’t it?
Remember that the next time someone talks to you about conservation.
