Green Tip of the Month

Tired of junk mail? Get rid of it AND protect the planet at the same time! To eliminate some of the catalogs or junk mail you receive, just buy some postcards at the Post Office with the postage already on the card ($.30), or cut cardboard to postcard size and put on the new postage amount of $.28. Write “Remove from Mailing List” and affix the mailing label from the catalog or flyer to the postcard. Address and send the postcard to the company who sent the unwanted mail. This will help save some trees, and will lighten the load in your mailbox and your trash can! Eventually, you will only receive the mail you want to receive!
