Unwanted Catalogs

If your mailbox is like mine, you find catalogs in it all the time from places you have never even heard of. Maybe you still get them from places you had ordered from years ago.

Either way, they don't need to send them to you anymore. Most of them have telephone numbers on them - call them and ask to have your address removed from their mailing list. You can also go online to catalogchoice.org to put a stop to them.

Not convinced you should do it yet? How about this...every year about 19 billion catalogs are mailed to American consumers, according to the Daily Green. These catalogs require more than 53 million trees and 56 million gallons of wastewater to produce. Not only do they waste our precious resources, but they also cause pollution being produced and distributed.

Most companies have their products on their websites, making all those catalogs unnecessary.

Do something about it today!
