Who wants unnecessary clutter? None of us do. But, just open up your mailbox and you’ll probably find lots of mail you don’t even open.

Junk mail has a huge carbon footprint and overloads our landfills.  It’s also a big waste of your precious time and energy to sort, weed, shred and toss. And, unopened mail in the trash can be easy prey for fraud and identity theft .

Barb comments on Junk Mail on Channel 12 News CT

Time to organize your life, plant your Seeds for Success and go for the win-win. Stop the mail from reaching your doorstep in the first place by contacting organizations that can help like Direct Marketing Association Choice and companies who have your name on their mailing lists.

It’s worth the bother to reduce and hopefully eliminate junk mail and live a greener lifestyle. According to CT’s Green Scene’s Junk Mail: Return to Sender loaded with great tips on how to get rid of unwanted mail, ”The next time you get a catalogue or a coupon pack, think how many trees were destroyed before it landed in your mail box. Then, think about what you’d like to do about it.”
