Save time! Save trees! Save the planet!
Did you know that more than 100 million trees are destroyed each year for junk mail? Plus 28 billion gallons of water and enough energy to power more than 9 million cars?! When we stop junk mail and catalogs, we keep trees in the forests doing what they do best – providing oxygen for us to breathe and absorbing C02 to keep our planet cool and healthy.
That’s why Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society is partnering with 41pounds.org to stop junk mail. For $41 (just $8.20 a year, or 2 cents a day), the 41pounds.org service does all the leg-work to reduce your junk mail and catalogs by 80-95% for everyone in your household for five years -- and donates $15 to Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society.
Thanks to you and the 41pounds.org service, we can:
- Keep trees in the forest. More than 100 million trees are destroyed each year to produce junk mail. 42% of timber harvested nationwide becomes pulpwood for paper.
- Reduce global warming. The world’s temperate forests absorb 2 billion tons of carbon annually. Creating and shipping junk mail produces more greenhouse gas emissions than 9 million cars.
- Save water. About 28 billion gallons of water are wasted to produce and recycle junk mail each year.
- Save time. You waste about 70 hours a year dealing with junk mail.
