Holy lazy weekend….
We did a whole lot of nada.
Most of the time we just toss it when we get it, right? So why is it that we are willing to bring our own cloth shopping bags and drive electric cars to help save the world but we aren’t willing to actively reduce our paper collection.
Can you believe that? Eight months opening junk mail, when you already toss almost half of it. What a waste, ain’t nobody got time for dat.
Did you know that if you reduce your junk mail you can save 500 pieces of mail per year, per person. That is a lot of paper.
But how? Today, take an hour out of your day to get yourself off some mailing lists. The Direct Marketing Associations Mail Preference Service is a great place to start.
Remember that top you ordered two years ago, still getting their catalogs? Take ten minutes to call and get removed from their mailing list.
If nothing else, at least set up a small recycling bin to throw all that paper in.
Then pat yourself on the back.
