DMA Applauds US Postal Service's 'Mail Back' Program
Washington, DC, March 18, 2008 — Direct Marketing Association (DMA) President & CEO John A. Greco, Jr. praised the US Postal Service for its decision to launch a pilot program that would enable its customers to recycle small electronics and inkjet cartridges by mailing them free of charge.
“I want to applaud Postmaster General John Potter and the staff at the US Postal Service for launching their ‘Mail Back’ program, which makes it easier for consumers to dispose of used or obsolete electronics in an environmentally responsible way,” said Greco. “As evidenced by our ‘Green 15’ commitment to improve environmental performance and our Recycle Please initiative, DMA is committed to helping our members, and the direct marketing community as a whole, create measurable environmental improvements. To that end, we believe the Postal Service’s leadership in launching this pilot program will go a long way towards helping consumers sustain and renew natural resources and make more environmentally-friendly choices.”
