Ars Technica: "As a serious environmentalist, the mere existence of junkmail—the non-electric kind—hurts me. It causes a knot in my stomach when I open my mailbox, only to take 90 percent of the contents and dump them straight into the recycling.
Luckily, a number of services have popped up in recent years to help people like me cut down on the amount of junkmail that gets tossed in the can. And, contrary to popular belief, you don't have to call up every single catalog distributor or bank to tell them to buzz off. We put together a guide to help you opt out of most kinds of junkmail so that you, your recycling bin, and your postman can get a much-needed break."
