How to Eliminate Junk Mail
November 06, 2007
Everyday when you open your mailbox, a cascade of junk mail -- from credit card offers to catalogs -- likely comes tumbling out. Not only is sorting through all of this unwanted mail a waste of your time, but it can increase your stress levels because, quite simply, it’s frustrating to receive a bunch of mail you didn’t ask for.
Anything you can do to keep your life more simple, and less cluttered, is a positive thing in my opinion, which is why I wanted to share Catalog Choice with you.
Catalog Choice is a free online service that lets you decline paper catalogs that you no longer wish to receive.
You have to fill out an online registration, choose which catalogs you want to opt-out of, and then Catalog Choice will contact the companies to request that your name be removed from their mailing lists.
Over 8 million tons of trees are consumed each year in the production of paper catalogs -- and the manufacturing, distribution, collection, and disposal of catalogs generates global warming gases as well as air and water pollution.
So by opting out of catalogs you don’t want anyway, you’re easily helping the environment.
