C.A.R. Green Tip of the Week: Dump the Junk

Did you know that the average household receives 1.5 trees' worth of junk mail annually? If you've ever wondered, as you tossed the unsolicited catalogs and direct mail materials directly into the recycling bin, if there is a way to stop this waste of paper, fuel, printing, etc., there is. Simply log onto and opt out of direct mail lists at no cost.

The site also allows you to select the materials you want to receive, such as credit card offers and catalogs. Another site, allows you to opt out, but charges $1 for the service.

C.A.R.'s "Green Tips" are a new feature of "C.A.R. Newsline" and are part of the Association's effort to raise member awareness about environmentally sound practices and offer REALTORS® ideas for greening their business practices and better serving their green-minded consumers.
