Direct Mail and the Environment - March 2008


I recently had the opportunity to speak with Eleanor Trickett, the editor in chief of DM News, about the inaugural DM News/Pitney Bowes survey on direct mail and the environment.

The survey reveals that consumers greatly overestimate the environmental impact of direct mail. Eleanor and I discussed the implications of this survey and how the industry can implement new technology and other initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of mail. We also discussed how industry leaders can work to improve the public perception of mail, and grow the value of mail as a medium in the long-term.
