Stop Junk Mail for Good

03.22.19

You can get rid of junk mail once and for all with Catalog Choice, a tool helping to protect the environment by stopping paper junk mail for good. The free service comes from The Story of Stuff Project, an environmental non-profit organization of more than 1 million members working to transform the way we make, use and throw away “stuff.” 

In the past eight years, Catalog Choice has helped over two million users cancel specific catalogs and other types of promotional mail in an effort to reduce the massive and unnecessary paper waste stream that consumes huge amounts of water and energy to produce and recycle junk mail.

Year-to-date, Catalog Choice, which has nearly 10,000 titles in its database ranging from clothing brands to credit card companies to charities, has processed over 640,000 opt-outs. According to calculations by Catalog Choice and the Environmental Paper Network, these opt-outs correspond with an estimated savings or diversion of 70 million gallons of water, 8.5 million pounds of waste, and over 20 million pounds of CO2.

Beyond helping the environment, Catalog Choice also protects consumers from scams. Aside from catalogs and coupons, the service can also help users get rid of junk mail that uses ads and gimmicks to solicit money by misleading and preying on vulnerable consumers, oftentimes targeting the elderly.
