Dump the Junk, Save a Tree

The average American receives 41 pounds of unsolicited mail each year, mostly junk mail. It's not just annoying but bad for the ecosystem. That 41 pounds per year represents:
  • more energy in production, delivery and landfill costs than 2.8 million cars do.
  • requires 100 million trees to supply the paper
  • bulk up landfills (44% of the junk is never even opened)
  • wastes your time sorting and recycling
  • costs you a lot of money, if you buy something you don't need.
You can help stop most of it from ever finding its way to your mailbox:
