It would be nice if the EPA and FTC could work together on this one so less waste in what seems like a very ineffective method of marketing will be produced.

Without the post office there is no daily mail. Your only option would be to pay Fed-Ex or UPS $20 to deliver a letter. No more birthday cards, bills, notices. You couldn’t even mail a bill payment in. Bulk mail is a pain, but it is necessary to the survival of this country.

Regarding your last line: “And if efforts to reduce waste at the source fail, let’s recycle!” I must admit that I find it unsatisfactory that we have to resort to recycling if we “fail.” There needs to be major consideration of a national do-not-mail registry, similar to the do-not-call registry, which has saved countless family dinners from interruptions by vendors.

A national do-not-mail registry, enforceable by penalties and fees for violations, is needed in order to successfully lighten our mailboxes and save the 100+ million trees that get cut every year. The pollution from making the catalogs and from the solid waste produced can be significantly reduced as well.

I hope those of you in EPA can use your Congressional liaisons and contacts to lobby more for this. Thanks.
