Protect the Environment and Your Mailbox with Catalog Choice

Every day I open up my mailbox to catalogs. Lots of catalogs. Catalogs for stores that I haven’t shopped at in years–like since I was shopping for my son’s nursery. Or catalogs to shirt companies that my ex-husband liked. In other words, catalogs that go directly into the recycling bin. It seems like a waste. Even though I recycle them, why should I even receive these at all?

I did a little research and found Catalog Choice, an online company that helps you eliminate the excess and unwanted catalogs from your life.  It’s a free service, which makes it even more wonderful.  You create an account, and then search their directory for companies who mail you catalogs.  Fill out your mail preference for any ones you want to “unsubscribe” from, and the company will ensure that your name is taken off their mailing list.

I have lightened the load in my mailbox considerably.  There are still a few catalogs that I like to browse through; however, I also know that I can look at them online.  Why should I add more to the recycling bin and/or landfills when I know that I can do my part to make the world a little more paperless?
