Reducing Paper Junk Mail

Two of our facilities, one in Saskatoon and the other in Winnipeg, partnered up to initiate a program to reduce the amount of paper junk mail (i.e., flyers, pamphlets and catalogues) they would receive.

At our Saskatoon facility, all incoming mail was collected, and each vendor with postage information was contacted with the request of being removed from their mailing list. Through this exercise, we were able to reduce our paper mail by about 95%!

Our Winnipeg facility was getting even more paper junk mail – approximately 14 kg per week. Joining our Saskatoon facility, together the two facilities aim to eliminate 1,180 kg of junk mail per year, helping to reduce their environmental footprint.
