Just received this update from Forest Ethics – San Francisco Passes Do Not Mail!
Yesterday, San Francisco made history by becoming the first city in the country to officially support a national solution to junk mail: the Do Not Mail Registry. Is your city next?
Well, that’s up to you! Passing a Do Not Mail Resolution in your city is an important next step towards ending the waste and destruction of the junk mail industry. That’s why we’re offering a free call-in training on how you can pass a Do Not Mail Resolution where you live.
Do you want to stop junk mail in your town?
On the training call, we will cover:
- an inside look at how we passed the San Francisco resolution,
- the ins and outs of how to craft a municipal Do Not Mail Resolution,
- a step-by-step guide to organizing support in your community, and,
- how to work with your local representatives.
Junk mail proponents have been raising money, training their volunteers, and lobbying our representatives for six years–ever since Congress passed the Do Not Call Registry. This is the first time we’ve been able to break through their money and lobbying power. Together, we’re creating a powerful movement to make our world a better, less wasteful place.
