How to Stop Receiving Junk Mail

Do you struggle with paper clutter? Stopping the inflow is an important step!


Here are the two main ways to stop receiving junk mail:

1. - call 1-888-5-OPT-OUT (1-888-567-8688) or visit If you call, follow the prompts to select removal for five years or permanently. If you select permanently, they will mail you a form that you must send back in order for the permanent removal to be effective.

Otherwise, you'll be opted out for five years.


2. - Visit You have to create an account, though there is also the option to register for the opt-out service via snail mail. There is a $2 charge to register online ($3 if done via mail) but it's totally worth it in my experience considering the amount of time and aggravation it has saved me.


Opting out of receiving unwanted mail not only saves you time, but it's also beneficial for the environment! More than 100 million trees are needed to produce the nearly 4.5 million tons (yes, TONS) of junk mail that's mailed every year in this country.

Adrienne is simply the best. I hired her for my professional headshots and was impressed with her attention to detail and ability to offer me compassionate support and encouragement during the entire shoot. She is bubbly, fun, and still a total pro. As a bonus, her business, like mine, is carbon neutral through locally based non-profit We Are Neutral.
