Reducing waste is easiest when we’re cutting back on stuff we’ve already all decided we don’t want. One good example is Junk Mail.
More than 100 billion pieces of junk mail are delivered in the United States each year, which comes out to 848 pieces per household. The production, distribution, and disposal of all that junk mail creates over 51 million metric tons of greenhouses gases annually, the equivalent emissions of more than 9.3 million cars. This destroys forests at 2 acres a minute just for stuff NO ONE wants.
