Did you know that the average household receives 1.5 trees' worth of junk mail annually? If you've ever wondered, as you tossed the unsolicited catalogs and direct mail materials directly into the recycling bin, if there is a way to stop this waste of paper, fuel, printing, etc., there is. Simply log onto https://www.directmail.com/directory/mail_preference/ and opt out of direct mail lists at no cost.
The site also allows you to select the materials you want to receive, such as credit card offers and catalogs. Another site, www.dmaconsumers.org/cgi/offmailinglist allows you to opt out, but charges $1 for the service.
