Here's some Junk Mail Facts that I hope
will inspire you to take action...
The average person gets about
1.5 non-marketing letters per week, compared to 10.8 pieces of junk
• Each person will receive almost 560 pieces of junk mail
this year which works out to about 4.5 million tons of junk mail
produced per year.
• 44% of all junk mail is thrown in the trash, unopened and
• Approximately 40% of the solid mass making up our landfills
is paper &paperboard waste.
• By the year 2010 (which is, by the way, the year when the
Mayan & Aztec calendars end..), it is predicted to make up about
48% of landfill waste.
• 100 million trees are ground up each year to produce junk
• Your name is typically worth 3 to 20 cents each time it
• Be persistent & patient in your battle against junk
mail. A decrease in junk mail should begin in a month, but removal
all lists takes time. While you wait, recycle what you can. There
are special recyling organizations in some states just for junk
mail. I'll try to compile a list of them here soon. If you know
of any, plese contact me with that info.
