Do you want to save some trees?

This is the logo for Catalog Choice. These wonderful folks will do the hard work of contacting the various businesses who send you paper catalogs, and tell them that you no longer want all that paper to go to waste.

Think about it. Do you do more shopping after perusing a paper catalog, OR after searching the online company site? If you’re like me, you search online, and then you shop for a book, music, a comforter, or whatever. If that’s the case, think of all the resources you can save by opting out of receiving catalogs. 🙂

I found out about this program from my online friend, Jennic’s blog post on Needless Paper Waste. (One of her commenters actually suggested this site.)

How many paper catalogs will you opt out of receiving? So far, I’ve started the process to stop receiving 18 catalogs.

    Great post on Catalog Choice.

    I wanted to give you a heads-up on another great Web site that I thought your readers would find interesting and help them de-clutter their mailboxes and simplify their lives.

    Its called ProQuo.com, a free, easy-to-use site that gives you the ability to remove yourself from the most commonly used marketing lists in a matter of minutes!

    Who knew that Americans receive nearly four million tons of junk mail each year and the average consumer can be on thousands of marketing mailing lists at any time? We are flooded with unwanted advertisements, credit card offers and political propaganda, which can bury the mail we are looking for…not to mention create a drain on the environment.

    Take care,
