Here's a quick gift you can give the planet for Christmas. Add your voice to the growing chorus of people who want to set up a Do Not Junk Mail list that would be similar to that wonderful Do Not Call list the government set up a few years ago. Wouldn't it be great?
Take this quiz to see how much of a waste junk mail really is:
The junk mail industry claims ___ trees a year.
Deforestation contributes more to global warming annually than all the _____ in the world.
Junk mail accounts for ___ percent of USPS mail.
Answers: 100 Million, Cars + Planes + Trains and 30%
Unbelievable isn't it? Surveys show that almost 90% of Americans favor the Do Not Mail Registry. Please join us at Vermont Woods Studios in asking Congress to make it happen, and forward this post to your friends. Ask them to join.
