Jerry mentioned in a previous post a couple of ways that you can cut down on the amount of junk mail that comes into your home. His suggestions got my thoughts about junk mail spinning and I knew that someone out there had to have a service to take care of the junk mail problem for me. Not only did I find a company to do the work, but I found a company that also works toward improving the environment.
Green Dimes, for a fee of $36 per year (monthly and lifetime membership options also exist), does the leg work of unsubscribing you from the majority of junk mail lists and also has a service to specifically get catalogs out of your mailbox. You can even unsubscribe previous residents of your home from receiving junk mail at your address.
The best part of this service, however, is that for every month that you’re a member the company plants a tree in your honor. EVERY MONTH! If you become a lifetime member, they immediately plant 270 trees for you. Reading the company’s FAQ page really helped convince me that of all of the companies out there that could help reduce my junk mail problem, Green Dimes was the one for me.
