(My mail for one week, how annoying!)
So what is Green Dimes?
Green Dimes is a service that was created to help you reduce the amount of junk mail you receive. Honestly, I have wasted plenty of time calling catalog companies or credit card companies begging them to stop mailing me offers. Just recently I placed an online order at a company I consider to be eco-friendly and now guess what? I get about 3 catalogs a week from them. I thought to myself, seriously?
Here are some facts from the Green Dimes Website:
1,123,193 trees planted
2,291,751 catalogs stopped
10,113,156 pounds of junk mail stopped
A Green Dimes Premium account will assist you in the following ways, automatically remove your name from prolific mailers. My thoughts instantly turn to a car insurance company with a little gecko, we must receive at least ten offers a month from them. Unlimited number of names can be removed per household. Catalog screener, allows you to opt out of the catalogs you don't want, while still receiving your favorites. Most members see a 90% reduction in junk mail they receive.
And the best part, drum roll please: FIVE Trees planted on your behalf!
Not only is Green Dimes helping reduce waste, but they are also planting trees to double the impact on our environment.
