In an average week how much junk mail comes to your home? For the average family, with two adults and two children, they could probably weigh their junk mail at the end of any given week to equal the weight of a small animal. An average home can get items from; clearing houses, credit card offers, insurance offers, mortgage advertisements and promises of lowering monthly mortgage bill, flyers, entries into contests that had never been entered in the first place, solicitations from charities and the ever present retail catalogs!
Along with the simple fact that all of these items are unnecessary and annoying, the amount of waste they create is drowning the average family in misused, unread paper. How can this issue be dealt with and the waste be reduced, or never produced, for us all over the country?
The answer to that question is, yes, there is something we can do to stop the madness of junk mail that litters our mail delivery every single day! There is a group that has done all of the work for us, and they have all of the information needed to put an end to the junk mail that we are assaulted with in just a few easy steps and with the patience of a few weeks.
