Unless It's a Movie or a Check, I Don't Want It

The Seattle City Council has a great opportunity to curb junk mail on Monday, January 25th by voting to approve the Do Not Mail resolution. Think of it as a spam blocker for your mailbox.

According to Do Not Mail, it takes approximately 200,000 trees to produce Seattle's junk mail every year and another $400,000 dollars to dispose of it.

If you live in Seattle, call or email the city council members, and if you can, attend the meeting on Monday at 2pm at City Hall, 600 4th Ave., 2nd floor.

Whether you live in Seattle or not, there are simple steps you can take to greatly reduce the influx of paper in your mailbox.
