Re: [GreenYes] junk mail
Greetings:

My Dec. 2001 "Recycling in Cyberspace" column in Resource Recycling on
reducing holiday waste addressed the issue of junk mail reduction and
prevention as part of this topic and provided a number of good web resources
relating to it.  If you don't get or have access to Resource Recycling, then
go to http://www.resource-recycling.com and select the link to Industry
Links and then look for the links to my columns. This links archive for my
column, BTW, goes back to August 2001.

> Gentlepeople,

> Thoughts?  Comments?
> Thanks!
