Ecolads - Reducing waste coming from paper ads in postboxes

EcolAds is a new advertisement solution for retail stores, local shops and independent craftsmen.

It is a service that anonymously link a home postbox to one or several personal e-mail addresses. This is possible by 1) Placing the sticker « NO PAPER ADVERTISEMENT » on the postbox and 2) Register on EcolAds website for free. The sticker features a special QR code which contains a unique randomly generated ID. Flashing the QR code helps the sticker owner to register: when flash with a smartphone or tablet, it simply and automatically opens the link to the website registration page. Once done, it is set ready for use, EcolAds service will help reduce junk ads in mailboxes. All the daily paper ads are replaced by a maximum of one single daily personalized e-mail to advise for the new ads. EcolAds is better for the announcers (improved statistics, cheaper then accessible to local shops, full carbon footprint compensation, new marketing possibilities), and a great choice for inhabitants (choice of ads to receive or not receive, cleaner home postbox, ads to be read on any digital device at home) since people can choose the ads they want to receive.
