Even if you can't plant a tree on Arbor Day, you can help save them with the newly launched Bye Bye Mail Toolkit to stop junk mail. Bye Bye Mail will donate $1 of every Toolkit sold now through April 24, 2009 to the Arbor Day Foundation.

It is hard to imagine planting trees as quickly as they are being destroyed. Ending junk mail is a powerful way to make a difference. For Arbor Day families can plant trees and also save them with the new Bye Bye Mailâ„¢ Toolkit to stop unwanted postal mail and catalogs.

A staggering 100 million trees are destroyed each year to produce unsolicited mail. Americans receive over 19 billion catalogs every year. That's just part of over 4 million tons of the junk mail produced annually, 50% of which ends up in landfills according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

In honor of Arbor Day and to save trees, Bye Bye Mail will donate $1 of every Toolkit sold now through April 24, 2009 to the Arbor Day Foundation. Bye Bye Mail is a new, simple toolkit to stop junk mail. The process of finding and contacting the sources to do it is very complicated and cumbersome. Bye Bye Mail has simplified it to a Toolkit that lets you pick and choose what you want to stop. And you only need to do it once every 3 to 5 years depending on the company or registry. To learn more, go to ByeByeMail.com.

Even if you can't plant a tree on Arbor Day, you can help save them.
