Letters, calls and emails: Every wasteful mailing can have a silver lining

Dear Editor

I absolutely agree with Dr Nigel Higson’s letter about the torrent of unwanted/unsolicited paper sent out at enormous expense (GP, 13 October).

However, I have found one benefit. Two like-sized, unopened boxes provide an excellent support for an additional shelf in my office upon which I can put things I do actually need or want.

They could even be painted or covered in coloured paper to match your décor.
