We buy a hard copy of Newspaper. 🗞.
I have lot of opposition at home however I continue to buy the hard copy of the News paper.
I have many reasons. 🤔
👉 I feel very happy that some people remain employed because I contribute in a miniscule way to the publisher ( that could include the paper delivery person ).
👉 I very firmly believe that online you have to search for the news but here it is handed over in a platter rather paper and as I often quote myself, you can choose to convert that information into knowledge by keeping a cut out or a scanned photo.
👉 There are small snippets of information which would never be available on the online version.
👉 There are cute, funny, timely comic strips which make me laugh and tempts me to scan and share with like minded people.
👉 I enjoy reading the celebrity news and movie information which may or may not be available online unless I search for it.
🤔 I do have a certain whinge🥲
🥲 The paper used to come in a plastic cover however that has stopped.
🥲 What continues to accompany the paper is this rubber band shown in the picture below.
🥲 Now I can use 1️⃣, 🔟 or 💯 but how can I use 365 * as many years of subscription? 🥲.
🙏 When the publisher claims they sell so many copies does it also not indicate the number or rubberbands being distributed *365.
🙏 I take this opportunity to request the publisher to ask the reader to handover once a month this rubberband back to the delivery guy so we can rotate it.
🙏 This would not only save cost to the publisher but it would also contribute in a big way to sustainability and our Mother Earth 🌍
🙏 Small actions can have big impact.
🙏 Let us do our bit.
🙏 The nay sayers to this post can help find other solutions.
