Description

Empty your recycling bin for good(!)

Stop unsolicited postal mail with the PaperKarma junk mail app.

Simply take a picture to unsubscribe from bulky catalogs, credit card offers and unwanted paper mail delivered to your home address.

Take a step toward protecting your privacy while also protecting the environment. Each year 85 billion pieces of unwanted mail clutter US mailboxes, with 44% of these direct mailings ending up in trash landfills (unopened!).

With PaperKarma, you hold the power to prevent direct marketing mail from being printed in your name in the first place.

How easy is it to stop all this junk mail?

• Simply open the app and snap a pic of the offending junk mail

• We apply some magic to automatically identify and recognize the mailer

• Simply confirm your choice and we work behind the scenes to unsubscribe you.

Boom! It’s really that easy.

Continued use of PaperKarma now requires signing up for a monthly or annual paid subscription.

We hope you have enjoyed 6 years of free service. Unfortunately this was not a viable strategy. The free app was shut down by the old team in early 2017 and is now fully deprecated. We are a new team that is actively supporting the app.
