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
