In my mental pictures, ink point cancellations from Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States are ugly, dribbled and unreadable while I have regularly received well done cancels.
Posted on 8 May 2009, this postcard was cancelled in Plymouth at 3:06pm. Its commercial message invite to recycle and produce compost through a web adress: www.recyclenow.com/compost. Unless you stick the stamps on the message part of the card, all stamps will be cancelled wherever he is on the upper line with such a cancel.
Recycle now is a information campaign about recycling launched by British non profitable company WRAP (for Waste & Resources Action Programme). Its goals are to limit waste, develop the reuse of material and a better managing of resources.
In France, lack of pictorial cancels, of cancels opened to paid commercial or general public announcement, the enveloppe finishes mostly in the garbage, not even the good one when I see what my neighbours do in the residence's bins...
