One Saturday I sat down at the computer with my pile of catalogs and went to each site to request that they remove me from their catalog mailing list. For the catalogs that I wanted to continue receiving I requested that they send them to me electronically. Most of the sites did not make this task easy, I ended up having to submit my request via the “contact us” field. I am not all together sure it worked.
Then my friend Lisa at Retro Housewife Goes Green told me of an easier way. Catalog Choice.
Catalog Choice is a free service, sponsored by the Ecology Center, which allows you to choose which catalogs you wish to receive and which ones you don’t.
The service is:
- Easy to use
- Will reduce your mailbox clutter
- Helps merchants better target their market
- Saves valuable resources from being used on unwanted items that go directly into a recycling bin sounds
Yahoo Green has a great article called: Stop leaving a paper trail which lists a variety of resources available to you for cancelling all types of unwanted junk mail.
