Save Trees By Reducing Junk Mail

Did you know that the average American adult receives 41 pounds of junk mail per year? All this adds up to more than 100 million trees cut each year, plus 28 billion gallons of water, and enough energy to power 2.8 million cars. Enough already!

41pounds.org makes it easy for you to do your part. Help stop your junk mail and catalogs and keep trees in the forests doing what they do best: providing clean air for us to breathe, taking in C02 to keep our planet cooler, and keeping watersheds and, ultimately, the ocean healthy.

Sign up to slim down by 41 pounds today, and in the process you can also choose to have $15 of the paid amount go to helping The Ocean Project continue to do our work with and for you and our other Partners!

  1. Great post on 41pounds.org

    I wanted to give you a heads-up on another great Web site that I thought your readers would find interesting and help them de-clutter their mailboxes and simplify their lives.

    Its called ProQuo.com, a free, easy-to-use site that gives you the ability to remove yourself from the most commonly used marketing lists in a matter of minutes!

    Who knew that Americans receive nearly four million tons of junk mail each year and the average consumer can be on thousands of marketing mailing lists at any time? We are flooded with unwanted advertisements, credit card offers and political propaganda, which can bury the mail we are looking for…not to mention create a drain on the environment.

    Take care,
