Real Life Junk Mail Removal Donates Profits to Charity

— April 5, 2007 — Eco
Did you check your mail today? Not your e-mail, I mean the regular mail,the paper kind. Anything good? Maybe some checks, a magazine, some bills, but what about the rest of that junk? Have you ever thought about how much junk mail you get a year?

Fortunately, has come along, and they not only know how much junk mail you receive, but they figured out a way to stop it!

Why are they called 41pounds? Glad you asked :)

1) 41pounds is the average amount of junk mail a person receives a year! 41 pounds of paper thrown in the garbage without the envelopes even being opened!

2) 41pounds will donate over 50% of their profits to support education, conservation and reforestation efforts. And they even have fundraising programs so you can raise money for your own favorite charity!

How good is that!?

For $41 dollars (which includes 5 years of service) will get your name off of the 20 or so companies that are responsible for sending you all your junk-mail. You know the usual suspects: solicitations, credit card applications, coupon books, etc.

A company that is Green + Charitable: I love it. Especially after looking at some of the statistics on their site.

Junk Mail as it Affects You:

More than 4 million tons (62,000,000,000 (billion) pieces) of junk mail are produced yearly.

California’s state and local governments spend $500,000 each year collecting and disposing of AOL’s direct mail disks alone.

$320 million of local taxes are used to dispose of unsolicited mail each year.

It costs $550 million yearly to transport junk mail.

Junk Mail as it Affects the Environment >

100 million trees are ground up each year for unsolicited mail.

42% of timber harvested nationwide ends up as pulpwood for paper.

It wastes 28 billion gallons of water for paper processing each year.

If you cut your bulk mail for 5 years, you’ll conserve 1.7 trees, 700 gallons of water and prevent 460 pounds of carbon dioxide from being released into the air.

Say NO to junk mail!! Go to today to learn more and sign up!
