dutch mailboxes

I was reminiscing with my husband about our recent trip to Europe and he reminded me about a cool system they had in Amsterdam to control junk mail and papers.

Each mailbox simply has a sticker on it for if they do not want junk mail and another sticker if they also do not want the local paper.

I think it is amazing that such a simple system can work!

That is a great idea! My parent's have a similar system in Little Rock, Arkansas. I sure wish Houston would catch up to this system.

What a wonderful idea! Hum, I wonder what would happen if I just put a sign on our mailbox. (I found you via Green Baby Guide)
