Go Postal


Sick to death of all that junk mail you get every single day? I sure am. Each day I remove from my mailbox at least 3 catalogues that I never ordered and then have to find a way to dispose of them that doesn't leave me feeling guilty over the size of my carbon footprint.

But how to stop the madness?!

Check out Catalogue Choice. It's a free service, sponsored by the Ecology Center. Their aim is to stop all of the unwanted catalogue mail and to "promote sustainable industry best practices." You just set up a profile on their website (remember, it's all free) and browse or search the catalogue lists for those you are currently receiving that you would like to opt out of. By building a quick profile, you can always change your mind. This is all very good news for us who would like our desks to be a little bit cleaner and our lives to be a little bit greener.

I'm going to sign up right now.
