Stop Receiving Junk Mail
It takes 100 million trees to produce the junk mail delivered every year to U.S. mailboxes, including the roughly 800 pieces that arrive in your mailbox, if yours is a typical household, according to donotmail.org.
It's fairly simple to stop junk mail deforestation, though. Just opt out with a few keystrokes. Register for the Mail Preference Service on the Direct Marketing Association website. For $1, your name and address will be removed from prospective mailing lists, ending 75% of junk mail within about 90 days.
