Jacksonville, Florida – (The Hosting News) – January 22, 2009 – Several Internet-based companies have started a campaign to save 1 million trees in 2009, including PerfSpot, Yovia, and the Privacy Council, by creating a new type of opt-in marketing registry.
Under the new mandate, consumers can utilize to prevent paper junk mail, a nuisance that fills up mailboxes and kills an estimated one tree per household every year. A Purge and Re-subscribe method lets consumers eliminate their address, phone number and email from all major marketing databases.
At the same time, people choose which mailings and catalogs they do wish to receive. Junk mail exacts a heavy environmental toll, killing trees and filling landfills. Junk mail destroys roughly 100 million trees per year, and about 44% of junk mail is thrown away without being opened. This initiative is being sponsored by leaders in social media to demonstrate the power of strong social movement to impact change.
As marketers, these companies sought to take the lead in the movement toward reducing unwanted emails, phone calls and junk mail. PerfSpot PerfSpot was created to provide the perfect web portal for people to share their favorite things on the web.
