5. Stop unwanted mail

Nearly 50,000 tonnes of junk mail hits Devon's doormats every single year. 

The mailing preference service

By giving your name and full address to the mailing preference service, you could reduce the amount of junk mail you receive.

You will still receive mail from companies that you specifically have dealings with, for example, insurance companies, but your junk mail could reduce by a third. 

Remember to indicate that you do not want your details passed on to other agencies for marketing purposes when signing up to things.
