Sprint Scores High Marks for Ethical Paper Sourcing
We may all get annoyed with the amount of spam and unwanted emails that end up in our inbox, but paper junk mail will not cease anytime soon. Credit card offers touting free airline miles and goodies comprise a big chunk of all that junk, and the amount of those mailings doubled from 2009 to last year. Slice and dice the data as you wish, but those 2.82 billion credit card solicitations consume their share of trees, energy, and landfill space. Wireless carriers contribute their fair share to the snail mail, by either offering to link up that additional family member or an “offer” to extend your contract by another two years with the latest smartphone.
