independence from junk mail?

Thursday, 13 April 2006

Declare your independence from junk mail is a new campaign sponsored by the Center for the New American Dream. On their site, you can send an e-mail to your elected officials asking them to support the creation of a junk mail opt-out registry similar to the Do Not Call telemarketer registry.

The production and disposal of unsolicited mail wastes trees, pollutes our water, and consumes more energy than 2.8 million cars at a time when energy security is more important than ever. Worst of all, it forces citizens and local governments spend more than $370 million per year to collect and dispose of unsolicited waste and it violates the privacy of our homes.

The Center for the New American Dream helps Americans consume responsibly to protect the environment, enhance quality of life, and promote social justice.
