Stop That F*****g Junk Mail by Going Green.

Do you like your junk mail? Probably not. After sorting through it, you have to throw it away or (hopefully) recycle it. Not only is it annoying, but it’s very environmentally unfriendly.

Every year, 100 million trees are ground up to use in making junk mail, which adds up to 4.5 billion tons of trash each year. More than 28 billion gallons of water are also used in the process of making the junk mail. I could go on, but it would get boring. Anyway, the point is junk mail is bad for the environment.

So what can you do to fight the horrendous waste of resources? GreenDimes can help you. For a dime a day, they’ll reduce your junk mail by up to 90% and plant a tree every month for you.
