A Trail of Mail

If you’re tired of receiving junk mail
And found that it’s leaving quite a trail,
Sign up online to put it to an end
Don’t forget to tell all your friends.

Losing the Paper Trail

  • More often than not most of the papers shoved into our mailboxes are not letters or magazines, but junk mail selling everything from hand painted porcelain plates to discounts on plastic surgery.
  • One of the easiest ways to cut down our paper trail is to sign up on a website which stops unwanted junk mail from reaching the mailbox. These websites work by having your name removed from various marketing agencies and can stop everything from credit card offers to coupon booklets.
  • Take it a step further by making your bills and magazines paperless too. Start receiving online statements of your bills and try signing up for an online magazine… you’ll be surprised at how easy and convenient it can be to save on paper.
