Ending Junk Mail

Recycling paper is better than dumping it in landfills, but it’s still a huge waste of resources to manufacture, transport and dispose. Here’s a  link to tips about ending junk mail. Note: Leslie and I have eliminated a lot of junk mail, but it’s damned persistent. To finally end unwanted catalogs, we had to cut out the mailing labels with the customer ID, and send it back with a request to stop mailing us. We used postage-paid postcards from the post office to simplify the process.

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
