You can also reduce junk mail by opting for websites like OptOutPrescreen, which prevents you from receiving unsolicited credit card offers, and Catalog Choice, which prevents you from receiving unsolicited mail from retailers.
8. Use less electricity at home

This is obviously useless in the winter but in the warmer months you can save energy by driving your car
Even if you want to upgrade your home computer, opt for a laptop over a desk – they consume about half the energy – and make sure you turn it off at night.
