Recently I wrote about things you can do in honor of Earth Day, which is April 22.

I mentioned that you can reduce the amount of junk mail you get by contacting the Direct Mail Association and asking that your name be put on the National Do Not Mail List.

To have your name taken off more lists, visit 41 Pounds, which will contact additional direct-marketing organizations and catalog companies on your behalf. You’ll pay $35 for five years, with a portion of the profits going to environmental groups.

It won’t cost you anything to call catalog companies and request that they take your name off their lists or you can subscribe to Catalog Choice, a site that lets you search for catalogs by name and cancel those you don’t wish to receive.

To avoid getting on mailing lists to begin with, access information on the Internet instead of signing up for newsletters or calendars from your favorite restaurants, gym, alumni association, museums and other sources.

Do you dump your junk mail or do you read it?
