I hate junk mail. What a waste of paper! In the past I’ve cancelled some junk mail, but now I will start to cancel every piece of junk mail that I get. In preparation for this green change, I’ve been putting our junk mail into a folder for the last few weeks, and today I called each business to have our address removed from their mailing list. I made sure to call during normal business hours so that there would be a person at the end of the seemingly endless automated phone chains. For the rest of my Green Challenge (and hopefully forever) I will continue to call and cancel all of the junk mail that I’ll inevitably receive. Did you know, more than 100 million trees are destroyed to produce junk mail each year?
Also- a quick update on the toothpaste situation- I was able to squeeze a total of 11 extra uses out of my tube of toothpaste. I couldn’t believe how much toothpaste was left in there!
