Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) October 5, 2007
GreenDimes (http://www.greendimes.com), the nation's leading junk mail reducer, donated 1,500 Junk Mail Reduction Kits to attendees of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting held September 26-28. Leaders from business, NGOs, foundations, academia and government attend the CGI Annual Meeting which is held in New York each September coinciding with the U.N. General Assembly. The Annual Meeting is comprised of receptions, plenaries, working sessions and an awards show. This programming is designed to provide insights into global problems for the purpose of enabling productive action in CGI's four areas of focus: education, energy and climate change, global health and poverty alleviation.
"Junk mail is a problem that affects everyone. Not only does it take up space on your counter and in your mailbox, but it is also wasting natural resources," says Kendra Ott, GreenDimes Marketing Manager. "Being involved with the CGI Annual Meeting allows us to bring even more attention to this important issue and puts our Junk Mail Reduction Kits in the hands of important leaders who lead by example and encourage others with their actions."
Each CGI Annual Meeting attendee received one GreenDimes "Free Me!" Junk Mail Reduction Kit. The kit, which retails for just $15 at http://www.greendimes.com, supplies attendees with the resources needed to eliminate postal junk mail by up to 90% and the power to reclaim their mailbox while saving environmental resources at the same time.
Additionally, GreenDimes plants 10 trees with the redemption or purchase of each "Free Me!" Junk Mail Reduction Kit.
