Opt out: Save time, Save Paper, Save Trees!

Real Estate Agent with Barcode Properties BRE # 01828994

Sick of getting junk mail?

Sick of useless catalogs left under your door and stuffed into your mail box? 

Opt out!  


Here’s how: 

1. Phone directories

2. Direct marketing junk. Register here to eliminate catalogs, magazine offers, donation requests, and so forth. 

3. Credit card offers. The service is a joint venture among four consumer credit reporting companies, such as Experian and Equifax. You’ll need to provide your Social Security number to stop the flood of credit card offers. 

Quick junk mail facts:


Here’s the impact you can have by opting out of junk mail. Just consider these four facts from Forest Ethics:

• Paper production is the third most energy-intensive of all manufacturing industries, using over 12% of all energy in the industrial sector. 

• American households receive a total of 104.7 billion pieces of junk mail annually – 848 pieces of junk mail per household. That chews up 6.5 million tons of paper each year.

• Approximately 44% of junk mail goes to landfills unopened.

There are many days in which the only thing in the mail is junk.  Helpful tips, Inna Ivchenko !  In these days of cyber security problems, do you find providing your social security number to "opt out" of the credit card junk mail may open you up to more serious issues?

Hi Inna- I'm with you. I opt out of everything I possibly can. I hate having to mess with paper. And I read magazines and books online as well.

It seems that most of my junk mail these days comes via email anyways and I am often opting out of whatever subscription I am part of, haha.

I think sometimes I just want to opt out of life, run away to the southern coast of Italy and drink lots of wine (and eat great cheese). I would save tons of paper that way.
