Did you know that 100 million trees are cut down a year for junk mail alone, or that 28 billion gallons of water are used to create the paper for said mail, and paper makes up 235 million tons of waste that Americans send to landfills each year... at 70 pounds of junk mail a year per household. It all grows by 3 million pieces a year. (Quoted from the greendimes website)
I got the link to Greendimes from Karen's website... wow, awesome! I was just saying to Tom the other day that I wish I could stop all of our stupid junk mail. It goes straight to the recycling. I'm tired of sorting my mail over the recycling bin before I even open it.. then having the recycling bin in the house fill up in less than a week... of course if I end my junkmail I'll barely get anything in the mail anymore.. where's the site to end my bills!?
So go HERE and end your junk mail.. they plant a tree too.. how cool is that.
Thanks for the info.. I hope to walk the talk too!!!!
