Tired of junk mail, unwanted catalogs and phonebooks flooding your mailbox? Unwanted mail goes into the recycling bin, but wouldn’t it be better to stop it altogether?
Your easy, one-stop solution awaits you!
Free My Mailbox is a website that allows you to quickly opt out from unwanted junk mail, phone books and catalogs.
So far, over 24,000 North Carolinians have opted out of telephone books, saving almost 6,000,000 pounds of paper.
Need a few more good reasons to opt out?
National studies indicate that up to 70% of household mail is unwanted!
Since Yellow Pages Opt Out began, the total consumption of paper used in directories has decreased by more than 50%.
Recycling one ton of paper saves 7,000 gallons of water and 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space.
Recycling one ton of paper saves enough energy to power one American home for about six months!
The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that "44% of junk mail is discarded without being opened or read, equaling 4 million tons of waste of paper per year, with just 32% recovered for recycling."
