In Canada, there is the Red Dot that is supposed to work:
Red Dot Campaign | Now Say NO to Junk Mail
However, I found out about this two late. I had already re-delivered my junk mail to the post office, stalked the mail carrier, and called local free newspapers and threatened to collect all the newspapers on my street and dump them on their doorstep.
It worked. I now only receive mail that is actually addressed to me. It's not perfect, but at least I'm not getting all those flyers and stuff that just go straight into the recycle bin.
The post office actually complained to ME though, and said that AdMail is how they make their money. Who else here is willing to pay more postage to keep the garbage out of our homes and landfills?
I've tried just about everything suggested above here in California. Right now I'm bringing the catalogs home, caling each company with my request (when they ask me why I'm cancelling, I answer that it's "for the environment" and then I'm recycling them myself. The man at the post office said they recycle all of the discarded junk mail, but I see people throwing garbage in those bins.
I still receiving some junk mails and it's ridiculous, useless and annoying. Oh, by the way I haven't seen this post before. Just wanna voice out my opinion. Thanks everyone.
Oh tell me about it. Every piece of mail I receive is junk mail. Most of my e mails are junk these days too. Very frustrating
I will do that RainBarrel
The biggest mail stopper I did was paying all my bills online and asking my bank to stop sending my monthly reports I can check all that online anyways. Junk mail has never been a problem for me I guess I'm just lucky.
I think directly contacting to the company or revert them back to by subjecting refuse are the best option to reduce the junk mails.
