'Do not mail' registry

This week marks the second anniversary of the National 'Do Not Call' Registry.

Now, according to the Postal Employees Network, Americans are taking aim at their mailboxes.

The Center for a New American Dream , a nonprofit in Takoma Park, MD, is launching a new petition asking Congress to build upon Do Not Call’s success and commission a registry to let citizens opt-out out of an equally relentless form of marketing – junk mail.

“At long last, Americans can eat dinner free from the incessant harangue of telemarketers,” said New American Dream President Betsy Taylor. “We should also be able to open our mailboxes with similar peace-of-mind. Let’s face it – how many Americans actually WANT junk mail?

Let’s set up a companion registry – call it Do Not Junk – to keep junk mailers from wasting resources and invading our homes.”
