messageElection canvassing and the environment
Posted by TheArtfulDogger 06 November, 2019 11:14

One of today's news stories is that the environment will be a big hot topic for the election this year

With that in mind, will political parties still insist on producing forest loads of leaflets, newsletters and other canvassing material that will be dropped through our letterboxes and ultimately into recycling?

One to watch I feel.

I think that it'd be definitely be right to reduce giving leaflets to people who haven't asked for them, but I'm sure it wont stop entirely

as an aside but still on politics and the environment, I've always thought that creating barriers to trading with your closest neighbours has got to be bad for the environment

surely a Spanish orange has a lower footprint than one from say Florida?

but that doesn't seem to be talked about much
