AOL: Stop Sending Wasteful Metal Junk Mail|
2002-06-19, 5:43 p.m.
America Online's aluminum junk mail is in a class all its own. The company's newest gimmick is to package its disks advertising free hours of online access in a metal box. This ''metal mail'' is a central part of the company's $3.8 billion annual ad budget and really takes a toll on our nation's energy security and on our environment.
Urge AOL's Steve Case to conserve energy and help the environment by reforming his company's junk mail practices.
