Help Stop Junk - 'Do Not Mail' Campaign

From the makers of 'Do Not Call', we now have 'Do Not Mail'!

I know sometimes it's nice to see something in the mailbox, even if it is junk, but think about the following numbers next time you pull a handful of wasted paper out of your mailbox.

Junk Mail in the US:
  • 100 billion pieces delivered per year
  • 800+ pieces per household
  • 1/3 of all the mail delivered in the world
  • To produce the paper- over 100 million trees, and more greenhouse-gas than 3.7 million cars produce
