As I was at my local recycling center, recycling some old electronics, they handed out a kit that has a few addresses that you can send some information to, to reduce the amount of junk mail you receive.
Just download the template, print it onto a piece of oaktag, and send it out with a 26 cent stamp, and the address of the Ad company!
My scanner seems to be acting up at the moment, so I can't post up a scanned image of the kit, so I will type in the addresses manually.
*I thank my local recycling and waste management agency with providing me with these instructions. The man I spoke to loves this site, and he gave me permission to post the addresses of the Ad companies.*
Not only does reducing your junk mail make your house less cluttered, it also preserves space in landfills, and saves trees from useless advertising!
Step 1: Download This Template
Print this document out, and this is the Postcard that you should send to the addresses I will list later in this Instructable.
Now go to the next step once you have this on your computer.
If you have oaktag to print this template onto, it would be easier, so you do not have to put the template into an envelope, you would just have to put the adress onto the back of it and stick it in your mailbox.
Don't worry, the addresses to send this to are in the next few steps!
