Catalog Waste


4/21/2003
Fact: "More than 17 billion catalogs were distributed in the United States in 1998 - about sixty-four for every man, woman, and child. Not surprisingly, catalogs use a lot of paper - 3.35 million tons of it in 1999. The use of so much paper comes at a significant environmental cost. Paper is the fourth most energy-intensive of all manufacturing industries and one of the most polluting."

Action: Ask to be removed from mailing lists. Stop unwanted mailings selectively or generally. Write to the Direct Marketing Association's Mail Preference Service (MPS) for a general stop to all mailings. Ask catalog companies who catalogs you don't want to stop sendings stop all catalog companies from reselling your name and adress info. |Learn More|
