End Junk Mail!


Tired of junk mail? I recently learned about the website:
From the info page:
"American mailboxes are inundated with junk mail. More than 100,000,000,000 pieces of junk mail are delivered each year—that’s more than 800 pieces per household. In fact, junk mail in the United States accounts for one-third of all the mail delivered in the world. Even though 44% of that mail goes to the landfill unopened, we still spend 8 months of our lives dealing with it all. But junk mail does more than invade our homes and waste our time; it also destroys our environment. "
I recommend clicking the "end junk mail" tool on the website. To save time, it provides letter templates to the companies that send junk mail requesting that they remove your address and information from their databases. It's worth a try. Sign the petition too!

Thanks, Michelle!

We've recently passed 70,000 signatures on the petition, and are gaining a few hundred each day.
