How The Program Works
Stop Junk Mail for Good is the leading program in the U.S. that efficiently reduces physical junk in the corporate mailroom while measuring environmental savings. Our program is remarkably simple yet effective. The corporate mailroom team:
1) Removes the cover page of unwanted catalogs and magazines showing the sender and receiver info; 2) Places the junk mail pieces into a standard shipping box until the box is full and ready to send; and 3) Mails boxes of junk mail to our Boulder, Colorado processing center where our dedicated Opt-Out Team uses our proprietary software to individually remove current and past employees from mailing lists.
We only take employees off mailing lists provided to us. And we do not share employee information with any other source. The Stop Junk Mail for Good service easily integrates with existing mailroom operations.
As we take employees off direct mail lists, we track in real time environmental savings. Each month we provide metrics of saved greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, mature trees, water, and solid waste (please see below). Our resource savings numbers are measured by the non-profit organization Environmental Paper Calculator. For more info about how environmental savings are calculated, please download: How The Paper Calculator works.
To manage your opt-outs, we create a custom co-branded website showing your organization’s logo, and the logo of our software partner Catalog Choice (please see example top of page). We use proprietary software to enable our team to process opt-outs and communicate directly with the mailing list manager at direct mail companies. In addition, we provide a FREE online platform that can be offered as an added value to your employees to stop their unwanted junk mail at home.
