No More Junk Mail February 24, 2008

Filed under: reduce — terra @ 4:14 pm

Today I threw away (correction: recycled) 2 lbs of junk mail that’s been piling up on my counter, since I’ve been sick. (thanks for the well-wishes, everyone!) That’s a lot of junk mail. Now, we can all log onto ProQuo and get rid of pesky junk mail and weekly circulars.

Not only does it help the environment, but it can help prevent the pain and irritation of identity theft.

Sorry, Newman!

    Yay! Thanks Terra, glad you’re feeling better. Hope to see you soon.

    I hope you really didn’t mean: “threw away”. I hope you meant: “put into the bag for the recycling container”. At least up here by Cleveland everywhere we have those yellow and green recycling containers that take junk mail, papers and magazines. That’s where all our junk mail goes.

    But I am all for stopping the junk mail before anybody spends energy and resources printing it and delivering it to my house. Thanks for the info.

    Dale, Thank you! You’re right… I put it in the recycling. We recycle the junk mail, newspapers, and regular paper together. Thanks for the correction.

    I signed up for ProQuo and it was easy to select all the items I no longer want to receive.

    I just registered too. I am so excited. I can’t wait til 30 days is up. I am tired of the CC offers and telephone soliters. They really waste my time and money. Thanks for the tip Terra
