A tip of “06880”‘s all-natural cap to Westport’s Parks and Rec Department.
That means the town won’t mail bulky, several-page forms — in large envelopes — to every household in town. I’m not sure how many trees that saves, but it’s a smart, 21st-century move.
And one that the US Census Bureau should emulate. The other day I received their letter, telling me that soon I’ll receive a census form. When I get it, they said, I should return it.
Whew. You can imagine how surprised I’d be to get a census form without knowing it was coming. No way I could have figured out I was supposed to mail it back.
