How to Stop Junk Mail: Reduce Your Waste!

How to reduce the amount of junk mail you get at home.

| September/October 2007


Each year, you gain 41 pounds…in junk mail. That’s an annual average of 560 pieces of unwanted mail—about 11 pieces a week, which is 10 more than the number of personal letters you probably get. The 62 billion pieces of unsolicited U.S. mail sent annually will:

■ consume more energy in production and disposal than 2.8 million cars

■ require 100 million trees for paper

■ end up in the trash (44 percent never opened), bulking up landfills



■ waste time when you peruse and recycle mail

■ cost you money if you succumb to purchasing things you don’t need
