SERIOUS MONDAY: CUT DOWN ON YOUR JUNK MAIL – AND SAVE TREES!

Around 100 million trees are used each year in America simply to provide the paper needed for the country’s junk mail !

Since ours is a much smaller country, the UK obviously uses a lot less – but it’s still a sizeable amount – and a total waste if the mail is unwanted and goes straight into the bin.

Fortunately, we can all do something about it – and without any cost.
All you need to do is sign up to the Mail Preference Society and they’ll make sure that your name and address are removed from the junk mail circuit.

Stopping junk mail makes a lot of sense. It not only cuts down on all the waste – the paper and inks needed for the printing plus the transport and eventual delivery but it means you no longer have to open all those letters offering you everything from low-cost loans and credit cards (one of the biggest junk mailings around) to holidays and life insurance.

It can be a few weeks before your request to MPS takes effect so the sooner you apply, the sooner you can cut down on the waste of paper!

(And if, like me, you’re driven around the bend by call centres ringing you all day long, don’t forget there’s a telephone preference society too – and there’s a link to it from the mailing preference website.)
