The ERC and Sawtooth Botanical Garden are partnering up with local youth groups BCTAC, BCTAC2, the WRHS Environmental Club, and the Silver Creek High School to educate our community about the ecological and economical consequences of junk mail. Join us on Saturday, January 15th from 10 am–12 pm at Tully's and Iconoclast in Ketchum and Hailey Coffee Co in Hailey. At each venue, we will be providing information on how to tame the junk mail in your life and will even have a computer available for you to sign up to start managing your mail immediately. Reducing your junk mail is one small, easy step every one of us can take to start reducing our carbon footprint.

Eliminating junk mail reduces carbon dioxide emissions, reduces the number of trees cut down, and reduces water consumption. Therefore, by eliminating junk mail, we are preserving our air, soil, water resources, and thus protecting our beautiful Wood River Valley.
