BOULDER, COLO. – Aug. 28, 2007 – Consumers over the age of 45 are being targeted with the most junk mail according to stopthejunkmail.com’s 2007 second quarter survey. Results show that the over 60% of surveyed participants are over the age of 45 years old, which include the baby boomer demographic.
Stopthejunkmail.com releases their consumer opinion survey quarterly in an effort to determine how best to reduce the environmental impact of postal junk mail. The survey is taken anonymously by a nationwide sampling of consumers to accurately show attitudes toward stopping junk mail.
The survey also asks consumers what they believe are direct mail’s “worst offenders” with banks at the top of the list followed by catalogs. The top three cancelled catalogs during the last quarter were Frontgate, Ballard Designs and Home Decorators Collection.
