Time For US Govt. To Stop Junk Mail

by Reforestation Alliance Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015 at 8:06 AM

US taxpayers have subsidized with hundreds of billions of dollars the junk mail ad industry whose absurdly low rates allow them to clog landfills, kill trillions of trees, cause global heating, and violate citizen privacy.

Time For US Govt. To...
stop_junk_mail.png, image/png, 585x403

In the U.S. the government has a 'do not call' website http://donotcall.gov Those who do not want telemarketer phone calls register their numbers. It is then against the law for telemarketers to continue to bother those registered. It is time for a do not send, a donotsend.gov website

The people of the US through our postal rates are subsidizing the deforestation, landfill clogging, global heating, and invasion of the sovereignty of people's mailboxes through junk mail. It is difficult to get off of the lists.The Direct Marketing Association, Redplum, and other mailers must be contacted directly. It is not yet enough simply to notify the Post Office.

2014 was the hottest year on record since temperature recording began in 1880. 9 of the 10 hottest years have occurred since 2000. Junk mailers, newspaper and magazine publishers, toilet paper manufacturers, lumber companies, builders using wood, etc. etc. are all contributing to the heating up of the world.

To ask for action in this area, 202 224 3121 (Senate and House)

Each day more and more corporations bow to the need to preserve the remaining

trees of the world, many because of the soaring cost of newsprint. White page

phone directories are no longer published in many areas. Newspapers are going out of business or to a fraction of the 7 days a week while many magazines are going

to quarterly or every other month.

If you want to reduce the global heating which causes

115 to 135 degree summers and 36 below winters, help stop the killing of trees, the destruction of animal habitat, and the killing

by smashing of the flightless baby birds and squirrels living in them,

please inform the Direct Marketing Association based in Windsor Connecticut.

Some post offices will continue to ignore your request if the mail

is addressed to occupant, resident or boxholder.

Your tax dollars have been subsidizing junk mail by the tens of

billions of dollars for many years.

In addition, the US postal system is not sufficiently recycling

mail thrown into their wastebaskets, nor are they in many

outlets offering recycled envelopes, boxes.
