This includes almost all credit card offers, coupon mailers, sweepstakes entries, magazine offers and insurance promotions, as well as any catalogs you specify.. Because some direct marketing companies require your original signature on the unsubscribe request, we send you several pre-addressed postcards that you sign and mail.. Is there anything I have to do?.. All you have to do is fill out our online sign-up form and provide us with your address, the catalogs you want to stop receiving and any other names of people receiving junk mail at your address..

And, rest assured that we absolutely will NOT ever trade, sell, lease or distribute any of your personal information.. This is our bedrock policy.. For billing purposes, we need your credit card information, but we keep that information only long enough to complete the billing process then we permanently delete that information from our records.. What information does 41pounds.. org gather from me?.. We only collect the information we need to remove you from direct mail lists and to contact you in case of a question comes up while we re working for you (which rarely happens!)..

These organizations are: American Forests, Trees for the Future and Friends of the Urban Forest.. What about mail solicitations from non-profit organizations?.. As part of our service, 41pounds.. org does not ordinarily contact nonprofit organizations who may send you mail.. However, when you sign up for our service, you may list specific organizations that you would like us to contact and request that they stop sending you solicitations..

The legislation also includes a public outreach campaign to make sure seniors and low-income people aren t deprived of useful information.. This is not a done deal just yet.. The bill faces one more vote this week, but it is expected to pass.. If it does, it could eliminate over a million Yellow Books that rarely get any use..

April 14th, 2011.. As you all know, Earth Day is rapidly approaching.. It is important that all of us not only celebrate April 22nd, but also make some lifestyle changes to help the environment flourish.. Here are some very effective but easy tips that can make a huge difference in your life.. Eliminate your junk mail!! - That one is easy.. Sign up with 41pounds.. org and you are all set.. (We had to put this as number 1 didn t we????).. Leave the car at home - It might sound tough, but if you actually make an effort, you can make a huge difference.. Once a week, don t drive somewhere where you normally would drive.. Maybe walk, or ride a bike, or have someone pick you up.. Doing this once a week can cut greenhouse gas emissions by 800 pounds per year! What a huge difference for such a little sacrifice.. Use your own grocery bags - Many people have already made this change but there are still so many others that haven t taken the time.. It really does make a huge difference and I like it much better.. The bags are more sturdy and easier to carry.. I would make the switch even if it didn t have such a large environmental impact.. You can buy these bags at any major retailer and they are usually less then $1.. Recycle your electronics - Old computers, cell phones, printers, etc.. all have important components that can be reused in newer equipment.. Go to this website to find out a quick and easy way to recycle all your old gear: http://www.. epa.. gov/osw/conserve/materials/ecycling/donate.. Wash when it s full - When you clean your dishes or your clothes, make sure your dishwasher/washing machine is completely full.. Doing half a load is a huge waste of water and can put a stress on your water bills.. Also, look into buying water-efficient appliances when your old ones die.. The change can be staggering.. Those were just a few of the changes I will be making this year but there are thousands more that you can participate in!!.. Older Entries..
