Save 20 Trees for 2 Cents/Day?!?
Our recent exhibition at Flatbed Press with Annette Lawrence reached far and wide! People are interested and concerned about junk mail’s impact on the environment and excited about “free paper” as a creative material. The reach of the show extended nationally to San Francisco and Boston and internationally to Dublin, Ireland. Hundreds signed ForestEthics’ Do Not Mail Registry petition.
The show has created a partnership with 41pounds.org, a non-profit that takes the dozens of steps for you to stop junk mail to your home for five years. The added bonus is that your action also supports Austin Green Art!
$15 of the $41 to “un-mail” goes to AGA! Just select Austin Green Art from the pull-down menu when you Sign Up.
• By stopping your junk mail, you’ll conserve approximately 20 trees and 7,000 gallons of water, and prevent global warming emissions – and you’ll gain about 3,000 hours of free time!
Can you forward this info to your friends and encourage them to take action?
During the spring AGA will be shaping a longterm strategy to mobilize national action to un-mail as many people as we can through our creative, community-building and FUN brand of activism. If you’re interested to get involved as an Un-mailer, let me know.
