Green Gift --- Get rid of Junk Mail!

By
Real Estate Agent with Aloha Realty Group

Give a gift that keeps on giving!  GreenDimes is a great service that will minimize and/or eliminate most junk mail.  The cost is $15 for a LIFETIME membership.  Go to www.GreenDimes.com today to register.  You can specify up to 8 names and name combinations for each address.  They encourage you to register names with the Direct Marketing Association which costs an additional $1/name.   You can go in and decide which catalogs you do not want. 

GreenDimes has been featured on CNN and Good Morning America!  

No cost solution -- in fact you can make money!   

  • Tell your friends and prospects about GreenDimes.com
  • If you refer them to GreenDimes and they register, GreenDimes will pay you $5.  Send me an email to kathy@kathybecklin.com and I'll refer you.  I'll be donating all my proceeds to my favorite charity - Habitat for Humanity.  
  • You will save an enormous amount of paper from being produced having a significant impact on our planet. See the notes below! 
  • You will save yourself tons of time by not having to sort through mail you did not want.

Buy a gift solution --

  • Buy the $15 subscription for your friends, family and clients.  They can go in and pick the options they want to use.
  • Imagine a client thinking about you every time he /she doesn't have junk mail! 

 Here's what GreenDimes says the impact of junk mail is! 

  • Your name is typically worth 3 to 20 cents each time it is sold.
  • 100 million trees are ground up each year for unsolicited mail.
  • It wastes 28 billion gallons of water for paper processing each year.
  • That's 4.5 million tons of junk mail produced each year!
  • 320 million of local taxes are used to dispose of unsolicited mail each year.
  • The average person gets only 1.5 personal letters each week, compared to 10.8 pieces of junk mail.
  • 44% of all junk mail is thrown in the trash, unopened and unread.

 Mahalo for taking a step to preserve our planet!

The green movement has some great things.  This can be pitched as green - also as a way to increase privacy and reduce a nuisance.

If Capital One would just take me off their mailing  list (and I have ask them to) it would save a forest.
