Ever despaired at the amount of email you received every day? According to the website Seeker, "spam has an annual global footprint equivalent to 3.1 million passenger cars on the road in a year, using 2 billion gallons of gasoline".
This means that your cluttered inbox is not only annoying to you, but it is also not really environmental friendly. So why not make a nice gesture for the earth and start spring cleaning?
Most of these emails aren't opened and end up in your trash anyway. Here are a few tools that will help you get rid of these useless newsletters you forgot you subscribed to, and will save you some time in the long run as we spend an average of 5.3 hours each week reading emails at home according to a Carleton University study.
The free handy website will analyse your inbox and find every newsletter you are subscribed to. You can choose to unsubscribe, just by clicking on a button. They also give you the option to combine the newsletters you want to keep in one single email a day, you can even decide at what time you want to receive it. Unroll.me supports Outlook, Gmail, Google Apps, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail, and iCloud
This free service will also analyse your emails and will help you sort your inbox. You can choose to delete and unsubscribe at the same time, or only delete what you don't need anymore. This will have your mailbox clean in no time! This one goes further in environment protection because for every friend you sponsor on Cleanfox they will plant a tree. You can connect with a Gmail account, Outlook, Hotmail, Live, iCloud, GMX and others.
Once you sign up with your email account, an Unsubscribe folder is created in your inbox in which you can place all the unwanted emails. Unsubscriber will notify the sender that you no longer want to receive their emails and will automatically move them in your Unsubscribe folder until you no longer receive them.
