Unsubscribe from junk mail with PaperKarma

Tired of getting unsolicited fliers, pamphlets, and magazines in the mail? PaperKarma makes unsubscribing as easy as taking a picture.

According to PaperKarma, the average U.S. household receives 850 pieces of junk mail each year. That's a ton of wasted paper.

PaperKarma, a multiplatform mobile app, allows you to snap a picture of the junk mail sitting on your counter, upload it, and never worry about receiving anything from that company again. It couldn't be easier.

You will need to create an account with PaperKarma, handing over some personal information such as a phone number and the address you're receiving junk mail at. After the initial setup, the process to submit a request is all of two steps.

  1. Take a picture of the offending mail. You don't need to include any of your personal information in the picture, but make sure the company information is clearly visible.

  3. Submit the picture to PaperKarma. From here, you will see the request as pending until you have successfully been unsubscribed.

After submitting a picture to PaperKarma, it will send an unsubscribe request to the company in the picture. Once the request has been processed, you will receive an alert on your device letting you know you have been unsubscribed.

The app is available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone; best of all, it's free.
