So I don't know how well this is going to work, but I just signed up with a company that is trying to save the environment by eliminating junk mail. It costs a little bit of money, but I figure it will pay for itself if it cuts down on impulse buys :).
Anyway here is there form letter, I thought some of you might be interested.
Help us save one million trees
We all know that physical junk mail that comes to your house is an annoyance and a huge waste of time. But did you know that 62 billion pieces of junk mail are produced yearly (an average of 41 Pounds per household)? And that 44% of this junk mail goes directly into our landfills unopened?
That is why I am asking you to join me in signing up with 41pounds.org. 41pounds.org is an organization dedicated to eliminating junk mail and helping the environment. For only $41.00, they can eliminate your household’s junk mail by 80%-95% for the next five years. They also donate half of the proceeds to nonprofit organizations, environmental groups and school districts.
41pounds.org’ goal is to save 1 million trees and donate 1 million dollars to various organizations, but they cannot do it without all of our help. Please visit 41pounds.org or call 866.417.4141 to find out more about this wonderful cause.
