Junk Mail— So Much Waste


Although I live in a community whose recycling program accepts 99% of the junk mail I receive, it still amazes me just how much waste I get in the mail each day. Recently, many companies have given consumers the option to receive “paperless” bills via email or web, which is a great step in the right direction. I recently discovered (via Body & Soul magazine) a few sites that can help reduce the amount of junk mail you receive: The Direct Marketing Association, The Consumers Credit Reporting Industry, and Native Forest.
