Election leaflets in the mail

I don't want leaflets in my mail. They're a total waste, especially when you consider that they're telling me essentially the same things as I learned from the leaflets that the various election canvassers have dropped in my letterbox.

In particular, why is the Green Party generating all this extra waste (leaflets)? Seems hypocritical when you consider what they have to say about junk mail, waste, etc. Deirdre de Búrca's leaflet came in the mail yesterday and went directly into the recycling bin last night.

Maybe the Green Party doesn't know that Reduce is the first of the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Maybe the Party's northern cousins will fill them in on junk mail.
