She Finds Solutions: Escaping Catalog Pile-Up

January 5, 2007 by SheFindsSuzelle

As 2007 hits, news stories about reducing your environmental impact with small changes to your daily routine have been flooding consumers. One idea stuck with me and I decided to test it out: reducing the number of print catalogs I get in the mail. (FYI: The average person gets 560 pieces of junk mail each year and more than 4 million tons of the stuff is mailed out annually.)

Sounds easy, right? Wrong. You should be able to simply call the companies and have them take off your name, but they say it could take weeks or even months to update the database. And sometimes it still doesn’t happen.

I’m not the only with the problem, according to Consumerist.com. image There are services like GreenDimes.com and 41pounds.org that will help you out, but for a fee. And that just seems wrong that you have to pay to get off lists you never wanted to be on. Even registering with the Direct Marketing Association’s “Do Not Contact” list costs $1.

So I’ll be continuing my little campaign against the glossies clogging up landfills in 2007, and if you’ve got any suggestions, I’d appreciate it!
