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|

Green Fact:
The average coral reef is 6,000 to 9,000 years old. But our actions are threatening the survival of most reefs. Global warming, which causes coral bleaching, is probably the greatest single threat to reefs today.
