Three times over the last month (that’s four weeks, not since the 1st of June) I’ve received envelopes from my bank absolutely stuffed with various adverts for loans, a variety of different accounts, online banking, etc. This is all printed on very shiny/glossy paper,
which I believe (but could be wrong about) is not recyclable .
I got my bank statement through today. No surprises there, it’s about that time again. Except that in today’s envelope was yet another advert as well as a leaflet telling me that I should consider using online statements so that I could help save the bank paper. Erm, dear paper-pushing idiots at HSBC… how about you stop sending me flyers and leaflets for shit that I’m not interested in, and you’ll save yourself the paper!
