Stop junk mail before it starts!
Reducing junk mail gets clutter out of your mailbox and it saves money by reducing the costs of handling and recycling unwanted mail. Substantially reducing junk mail also saves saves energy and resources. In America, more than 100 million trees are cut down every year to produce 100 billion pieces of junk mail. It’s good to recycle unwanted mail, but it’s even better to opt out of getting any unwanted mail the first place.
To substantially reduce junk mail, you need to reduce access to your name and address so that it won’t be traded, rented or sold to companies who send you unwanted mail.
