According to The Wall Street Journal, “consumers received 82.5 billion pieces of advertising mail through the [U.S.] postal service in 2010 ….”
Now an app can help with that. PaperKarma, a free app for iOS, Android, and Windows smartphones, was designed to help curb the delivery of unwanted junk mail — and reduce paper waste.
PaperKarma allows you to take photos of the junk mail you wish to stop. Snap a photo, and you’re done. We automatically contact the Mailer and remove you from their distribution list. PaperKarma can stop most junk mail that is addressed directly to you.
Have you tried using the app? To reduce your paper waste, what’s worked for you?
Dustin Feider had a different vision for treehouses than the conventional shack-like wooden structures often seen in suburban backyards. He wanted to design an eco-friendly structure that could sit among the trees without harming them, and that’s how he created the first O2 Sustainability Tree House. These unique treetop domes are constructed entirely of recycled materials, and they hang from cables instead of being bolted to trees so their impact is minimal.
