This is the season when your mailbox is stuffed with presents catalogs and other annoying junk mail. So here’s the scoop on all that mail (according to Parents for a Cool New York). 20 BILLION catalogs are printed in the U.S. every year, almost none of them on recycled paper. The catalog response rate is less than 3%. That means that 8 million tons of trees go straight to the landfill, with a brief stop at your house. It all could make an eco-girl cry.

Thank goodness for Green Dimes. Green Dimes will stop your catalogs, junk mail and plant ten trees all for $15. Hmm… I wonder if they do laundry too. Must ask.
