Eliminate Unwanted Catalogs and Save Natural Resouces

I just found this site and want to share it with you.  www.catalogchoice.org

What is Catalog Choice? 

Catalog Choice is a free service that allows you to decide what gets in your mailbox. Use it to reduce your mailbox clutter, while helping save natural resources. 

 

Did you know? 

Each year, 19 billion catalogs are mailed to American consumers. 

 

What’s the impact? 

Number of trees used – 53 million trees 

Pounds of paper used – 3.6 million tons of paper 

Energy used to produce this volume of paper – 38 trillion BTUs, enough to power 1.2 million homes per year 

Contribution to global warming – 5.2 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions, equal to the annual emissions of two million cars 

Waste water discharges from this volume of paper – 53 billion gallons of water, enough to fill 81,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools 

 

The mission of Catalog Choice is to reduce the number of repeat and unsolicited catalog mailings, and to promote the adoption of sustainable industry best practices. We aim to accomplish this by freely providing the Catalog Choice services to both consumers and businesses. Consumers can indicate which catalogs they no longer wish to receive, and businesses can receive a list of consumers no longer wanting to receive their catalogs. 

 

Help spread the word 

The collective positive impact that the Catalog Choice community has on the environment is directly related to the number of people using the service. You can help spread the word, by displaying one of our linked badges on your own website or blog.
