Catalog Killer

Maywa Montenegro at Gristmill has helped me solve a vexing problem.

So I was thrilled to read about a new unsubscribe service that is absolutely free. Called Catalog Choice, it’s a site that was developed by three nonprofit environmental groups — the National Wildlife Federation, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and the Ecology Center. According to the Times, since it was introduced last Wednesday, more than 20,000 people have registered.

Turns out you need to have a “customer number” on hand, which means you should gather up a stack of catalogs before permanently zapping them.
