As I’m going through all of the amazing green routines people have sent us, I see a few questions that keep popping up. A big one is about stopping junk mail and catalogs.
To reduce the sometimes overwhelming amount of junk mail you receive, the nifty site greendimes.org can solve most of your problems. A basic, free membership will provide you all the tools you need to stop most junk mail. If you need to send written statements to some companies, Green Dimes will even send you the pre-written card, so all you have to do is sign and send! It couldn’t be easier.
Now, the reason I say most junk mail, is because another big portion of mail that I’m seeing email questions about stopping is credit card offers – something that Green Dimes claims they can’t reduce. So I found this site from the Federal Trade Commission, that explains exactly how to opt-out of pre-screened offers of credit and insurance – hallelujah!
