Your mailbox overflows with essential communication - and unsolicited catalogs, postcards and an assortment of advertising ephemera. Add to this your growing collection of old greeting cards, calendars, menus, fliers and business cards, and the amount of paper you have to recycle swells.

What do you do with your junk mail?

"Mother Nature"
