I got a message from GreenDimes today indicating that the Direct Marketing Association is fighting back against attempts to opt out of junk mail lists. This shows that their work and that of others is making a difference, and also shows how regressive DMA is.
Sign the GreenDimes petition to create a national Do Not Mail Registry! You don’t have to be a member.
And then check out GreenDimes and sign up!
Our mailbox is almost entirely free of catalogs we didn’t ask for (which is almost all of them). We tried doing this on our own, but it was a lot of effort and needed regular attention. Then we signed up for GreenDimes to stop junk mail. It works beautifully. We used to get perhaps 10 or 15 catalogs every week. Now we get one every couple of weeks (and in a few moments, we just add to the list on GreenDimes).
GreenDimes charges a nominal fee. Read their site a little and you’ll see that it’s going towards great things. You can also get a slightly less broad service for free from Catalog Choice.
