Put An End to Junk Mail

                  Put an End to Junk Mail!


According to The Clean Air Council, “Americans receive almost 4 million tons of junk mail every year. Most of it winds up in landfills.” It seems like a daily frustration to go to the mailbox and find it strewn with catalogs, credit card offers, and ads from local utility companies. Then there’s election time, where many people are inundated with cards and letters from political candidates. Don’t they realize they can easily turn off voters by sending this junk mail? How about opening up your front door to find a door hanger from the local pizza parlor?


If you would like to put a stop to most of the junk mail you receive from major national marketers, contact the Direct Marketing Associations Mail Preference Service. You can register quickly and for free online at https://www.dmachoice.org/dma/member/regist.action.
