New Website Helps Coloradoans Battle the ‘Catalog Clog’

October 18, 2007

Denver – Shopping by catalog enhances the choices available to consumers, especially those living in Colorado's rural and mountain communities. Now a new, no-cost website will let shoppers choose which catalogs they want, or don't want, clogging up their mailboxes. David Mizejewski,perhaps best known as the host of television shows airing on "Animal Planet," is also a spokesperson for the National Wildlife Federation, one of the groups supporting Catalog Choice. He says cutting back on unwanted catalogs will help prevent forest wildlife from losing their homes.

"The forests being cut down to make paper for catalogs are great habitat for wildlife, and in the U.S. alone, 53 million trees are used in the production of 19 billion catalogs."

Mizejewski says a number of catalog companies are involved with Catalog Choice because getting rid of waste is good for their bottom line.

"A number of catalog companies have joined this initiative because it's going to help them streamline their mailing lists."

Consumers can visit the site www.CatalogChoice.org and manage which catalogs they receive.
