Effort Begins to launch National Do-Not-Mail List

A grass-roots effort is under way to launch a national Do-Not-Mail database that will be maintained and enforced by Federal authorities. The Federal petition to enact this registry is now on the White House web site.

 
PRLog - Aug. 2, 2012 - FAIRFAX, Va. -- A grass-roots effort is under way to launch a national Do-Not-Mail database that will be maintained and enforced by Federal authorities. Currently, there is no vehicle at the national level to prevent junk mail and unwanted solicitations. The proposed Do-Not-Mail registry would work very similarly to the national Do-Not-Call database, which has been effective in eliminating 99% of unsolicited phone calls since its inception over a decade ago.

In order for the White House to act on this request, 25000 digital signatures are required on a petition held on the White House web site. The effort began on August 2, 2012, and the public has 30 days to meet the signature requirement.

The purpose of the petition is to reduce environmental damage caused by deforestation, reduce the budgetary requirements of the U.S. Postal Service, and to ease consumer frustration in dealing with unwanted and unsolicited mailings.

Citizens wishing to participate in this effort are encouraged to sign the petition, which is available at the following URL:
