Because this allows us to reach out to people outside of our networks and outside of the typical cohousing websites. Even if only a couple of flyers are picked up, they can really make the difference. It’s also difficult to know the impact, because something they are found by someone, who gives it to a friend, who tells it to a friend etc.
What we learned over the year is that there are two options: 1) they are quickly thrown away, or 2) they stay there forever.
In the places where they stay forever, we see that not that many flyers are picked up. So leaving 5-10 flyers in every place should normally be enough. If there are thrown away, it’s not a lot, and if they stay there forever, there will be copies left for at least a couple of months.
If you carry around one or the other bag: cutting out a mini-sleeve out of a (cardboard) envelope provides for good protection, and makes it possible to carry 10-20 flyers wherever you go.
The mighty @manuelpueyo usually keeps the stock. We’ll be distributing a pack at the next plenary meeting, but you can always ask for more in between.
