Planning and shopping wisely avoids waste, saves money and sustains valuable resources. Here are some examples of actions you can take to reduce waste:
Over 100 million trees and over 28 billion gallons of water are used to produce one year’s worth of this country's junk mail. Reduce the junk mail you receive by using the following free services. Each service is different, so using all three will give you the best results toward significantly reducing unwanted catalogs, retail promotions, credit card offers, insurance offers and other junk mail.
Free opt-out services
Will these services stop all junk mail?
While you can greatly reduce the amount of junk mail you receive by using opt-out services, you will not be able to stop all junk mail. Some mail is sent to all households in your area—such as political mail and advertisements from local stores, grocers, and restaurants. These offers may not have opt-out options.
You'll also continue receiving mail from companies that you currently do business with. To stop these types of offers, directly write or email each of the senders.
