Junk Mail Facts and Statistics

Anyone who has a mailbox knows that junk mail has all but become an epidemic, especially in the past few decades.

Direct Mail Advertising (DMA) from places like restaurants, car dealerships, political parties and credit card companies account for the vast majority of the junk mail delivered in the United States. Regardless of the source, DMA, commonly referred to as “junk mail”, poses serious environmental hazards.

Junk mail is called junk mail for good reason. Most people don’t even open it. It gets thrown into a shred or recycling pile…or even worse, the trash. 


“According to Edward Humes, author of the book "Garbology: Our Dirty Love Affair with Trash," the energy used to create and distribute junk mail in the US for one day could heat 250,000 homes.”  
 
Some other staggering statistics about junk mail and its environmental effects are below:

  • “Billions and billions. The amount of junk mail delivered each year is staggering. It’s been estimated at 100 billion pieces of mail in the U.S. each year. That’s one-third of the total of all mail delivered in a year. Or to put it another way, every household gets about 848 pieces of junk mail a year.
  • 100 million trees. The only way to produce that much junk mail is to rely on lots of trees. Experts estimate 100 million trees are used every year just to produce junk mail. Many of them come from the largest forests in the world – located in Indonesia and Canada. But those forests are also home to about 17 percent of the world’s birds and 12 percent of the mammals on earth.
  • Nearly 1 in 3 chances it’s junk mail. If you stored your junk mail, it would weigh 41 pounds by the end of the year. While there’s a 30 percent chance that an individual piece of mail delivered anywhere in the world is junk mail, the percentage of junk mail to regular mail in the United States is much greater. Experts say the average person gets 18 pieces of junk mail for every piece of so-called “regular” mail delivered.
  • Credit solicitations. While there are many different kinds of junk mail, solicitations from credit card companies account for a good chunk of junk mail. That’s the case even though credit card companies have determined that only .25 percent of everyone who gets a junk mail solicitation will become a customer.
  • Loss of trees. The loss of 100 million trees a year is a huge blow, experts say. The forests on the earth absorb 2 billion tons of carbon a year. But with the deforestation needed for junk mail, there are fewer trees to help reduce greenhouse gases.
  • Fill up landfills. About 42 percent of all junk mail goes to landfills unopened. That fills up space and creates demand for new landfills.
  • Junk mail production. The factories that create and ship out junk mail are responsible for carbon emissions equivalent to about 9 million vehicles, according to www.forestethics.org.
  • Reduce junk mail and save the planet. Experts say that by hiring one of many companies that offer to contact direct marketers to remove you from mailing lists, you can eliminate at least 80 percent of your junk mail. There are also a number of free ways to reduce your personal pile of junk mail.”

  1. ARE YOU AWARE THAT MODERN NATURAL HERBAL MEDICINES OF THIS GENERATION NOW PERMANENTLY CURE DRUG RESISTANT DISEASES LIKE; HSV/HERPES, CANCERS, HIV/AIDS FOREVER WITHOUT A POSSIBLE COME BACK OR AFTER EFFECTS?
    It wonderfully worked for me;
    At first I was a bit skeptical about this Natural cure for herpes and other similar medicines. Discovering people with similar symptoms who are treated and cured by Dr Utu both on medias and in social medias on daily basis motivated me, so I contacted him for help!
    At first, I was a bit curious about this possible cure, but! I don't want to be left out without giving it a trial, so I contacted him as well.
    Some hours later he replied me, then he asked me some private questions, of which I honestly answered, I told him how I have lived and suffered with this disease and how much I will do anything to get rid of it. He assured me of total cure after taking his herbal medicines. It was even more easier than I expected. Also I never even imagined to get my parcels within five working days, but to my greatest surprise my parcels was brought to my doorstep by the end of the second day. I collected the parcel which I followed all the instructions as he had directed. Just as I was told "four weeks medication " my medicine finished in four weeks exactly. From week one of my medication I started noticing positive change in health. and in week two I could tell much more differences and I was so eager to even testify of life again in me.
    I patiently continue medication till the last bottle which was then week four. I was the first person the next day in the clinic for lab test. Not even a particle of herpes was found in my system when I collected my result. Knowing I'm now herpes negative at this point I proceeded to inform my doctor, he doubted me, that day he gave me a month appointment to be closely monitored. It's my health so I waited more six Months and again i went for 'lab test' in a different clinical lab.
    This time the result was still the same as the previous one. Also since this year I have been living my normal life and am still herpes free no symptoms and even till now no cold sore or outbreak. As a result of this herbal cure in my life and my family at large, I can boast of doctors today who through me, now uses African Traditional Roots and Herbs to TREAT AND CURE patients that are, CANCERS, HERPES, PARALYSIS, and HIV successfully today. Many are still ignorant of this I know.
    Contact Dr Utu directly today on; "drutuherbalcure@gmail.com" to free yourself from emotional stress and become healthy again

During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OSO on how he cured her from herpes disease. And she also gave the email address of this man and advise anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help.so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as DR. OSO assured me that i will be cured,after some time. i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE,the test came out negative.
