I feel like I am always on a uphill battle trying to control the amount of paper that comes into my house. Each time we receive junk mail addressed to us we contact the sender and ask to be removed from there list.
FYI for new moms out there do not give out your address to Tyme Maternity in there contest slip. I have asked them over and over to stop mailings and on top of their mailings you will get tones of stuff from Pamper, Enfamil and Nestly. Nestly is pretty respectful when you ask to be removed from there list other then the fact they sent me 3 coupons for free formula before they did so. (giving out free formula is against the WHO) I am still working on stoping the mail
Today to help curb the amount of paper we receive and try to save a few more trees we are going to make a few no flyer signs.
Steps to make sign:
1. find a paper flyer that was only printed on one side to reuse for printing
2. select one of the following images and print
No Junk Mail
3. cut out the image
4. (optional) laminate the image both sides using clear mactac - this will somewhat protect it from the weather elements
5. attache to your mail box
A few articles and web sites that I found interesting on the subject:
