Guest Post Julie Naylon of No Wire Hangers

Working as a professional green home organizer, one of the first things I have my clients do when I begin to declutter their homes is to abolish the junk mail. This means not only clearing it out of the home but also stopping it from ever being printed. Precycle is a stop junk mail service that will stop 90% of your junk mail in 90 days.  Each year, 100 million trees are used to produce junk mail and about 100 million households receive 16.6 billion catalogs. If you are concerned about identity theft then stopping junk mail is important. It keeps unsolicited personalized mail out of your mailbox. You’ll also have the ability to pick and choose what catalogs you want to receive, if any at all.  The junk mail reduction kit includes a reusable bag; two compact fluorescent bulbs and they’ll even plant five trees for you! While you’re saving tress and decluttering your mailbox you might want to sign the petition at donotmail.org too. Forest Ethics is petitioning our government to create a nation registry so that Americans can opt of junk mail for good. So go green and get organized this spring by putting an end to junk mail.
