Did You KNow?

That it takes 8 million tons of trees each year just to produce the mailing catalogs we get every stinkin day in the mail. I know I get like 10! So here is something cool, go to www.catalogchoice.org . Catalog Choice is a free service that lets you decline the paper catalogs you no longer wish to receive! Great way to go Green in 08!

keep in mind LC that they aren't cutting down rainforests for catalogs. This paper comes from trees that we grow right here in Monroe County. Our community/state depends on the demand for paper to feed lots of families.. back to your regularly scheduled blogging.

I've been using this service since October. Although it takes several weeks for the catalogs to stop, all the Macy's and Pottery Barn barage of paper has stopped! I beleive that catalogs brainwash you into thinking that you need something...delivered right to your mailbox...just like the impulse buys in the grocery store line.

I agree with that 100% Kevin! I know that it works on me!

What would make everyone happy is if that paper that goes into catalogs could instead go into "green" magazines that people could read to learn tips and tricks on making their homes more energy efficient and reducing their footprint on the planet..
