SF will stop the wastage of the paper: Advertising should require the consent

Consumers should not generally receive grocery coupons - only if they sign up, saith the SF.

the Rules for printed grocery coupons must be turned upside down.

It takes SF, which suggests a system where the consumers as the starting point does not receive the distributed advertisements.

to receive them in your mailbox, you must actively enroll.

- This will likely mean that far fewer will receive advertising, says miljøordfører for SF Carl Valentin.

- There will not be the here moronic trend, where you just send advertisements out to people automatically if they haven't said anything to it.

SF is going with the proposal, shortly after the group Coop has sent an open letter to the environment minister Dan Jørgensen (S), with a call to that printed advertisements are prohibited by law.

So long will SF, however, did not go.

- It is absolutely fabulous, Coop goes out and presses the minister, because there is really need for us to have fought the big waste of resources, that is, when there are made so many grocery coupons, says Carl Valentin.

- We do not seem as such, that there should be a ban, but has a slightly different approach to it. We would like to turn the current system upside down.

today, it requires that one sign say "no thank you"-scheme, if you do not want to receive grocery coupons from, for example, supermarkets and diy stores.

the Group Coop, which is behind the business as the Referendum, the Facts and Kvickly, will of with tilbudsaviserne for the climate and the environment's sake.

It is also to mobilise behind SF's proposal.

- We cut down huge numbers of trees to produce the advertisements. If you don't just get said "no thanks", so lands that potentially 60 pounds of advertisements in each and every mailbox on the year.

- It is a huge waste of resources, says Carl Valentin.

He hopes, therefore, that the law can be structured so that citizens will not receive printed advertising.

It had Thursday not been possible to get a comment from environment minister Dan Jørgensen on the proposals from SF and Coop.
