Carbon Fast for Lent: Junk the Junk Mail

Monday in Holy Week
In the UK: “Tell the Mailing Preference Service that you want to stop junk mail. Call 0845 7034599 or visit Sign up to Tearfund’s e-newsletter Twelve at”

As is often the case, the Brits have a lead in Carbon Fast activities. For those of us in the U.S., the North Carolina Dept. of Environmental Protection provides a handy web page entitled “Junk Mail Opt-Out” that includes links to get your name removed from various mailing lists.

If you support the idea of a No Junk Mail Registry similar to the National Do Not Call Registry, Care2 has a petition for you to sign.

Today’s mitzvah: Save some trees: consider steps to reduce the junk mail that makes its way to your mailbox.
