Fight Insane Junk Mail

Now here’s one I like.  It has some help on how to fight the insane minds that send you what seems to be tons of junk mail every year.

I don’t know about you but I would wager that I throw 99% of this crap in the recycle bin without even looking at it.

If you’re like me and sick of a) wasting trees, b) wasting ink c)reducing Lord knows what paper mills dump in the water and d) reducing the volume of paper in your recycle bin, then this is for you!

Thanks to the Seattle times article here, we now have a way to fight junk mail.

Q: What’s the latest in opt-out services for unwanted mail?

A: Catalog Choice (www.CatalogChoice.org), a free nonprofit service started in 2007, has made it easier for people to get off mailing lists for specific catalogs. This service is in the process of adding other types of advertising mail and unwanted phone books to its menu.

In response to Catalog Choice, the Direct Marketing Association industry group revamped its long-standing but not always user-friendly “Mail Preference Service” two years ago, setting up a free online service calledwww.DMAchoice.org.

I don’t know about you but I’m signing up immediately!
