Another entry in the "cool stuff found online" files. Catalog Choice is a non-profit devoted to getting you off catalog mailing lists. They're sponsored and endorsed by flotilla of green organizations in hopes of reducing the pure amount of paper and transportation waste represented by unwanted catalog mailings. There was a burst of interest a few months ago when the service first debuted, mostly along the lines of "the UI sure is pretty. I hope it works." Since it takes 6-10 weeks to cancel a catalog, I wanted to wait a bit before writing about it.
( a possibly futile attempt to manage my waste stream...Collapse )
