We have collected a handful of testimonials from our members that we want to share. We welcome your comments in the blog.
“What a great idea this is! Tell businesses that this is actually excellent advertising for them. I investigated and found a whole bunch of new catalogs that I am interested in while browsing through your list. I have bookmarked their websites, so I can browse their products online.”

“I shop 95% online. In less than 90 days I’ve opted out of 303 catalogs that weighed 120 lbs. My on line shopping will not diminish, just the waste. Thanks for a terrific site!!!”
-Catalog Choice member
“Thank you for helping! In three months I've gone from 51 catalogs to fewer than five stragglers, and seen your "confirmed" labels grow from single digits to almost half of the total as (I suppose) more merchants joined Catalog Choice. For the rest of the merchants, your "My choices" page and notes feature at least helped me keep track of those I contacted personally…The decrease in my daily mail volume is striking. Tell your merchants that the success of this effort will lead me to keep Catalog Choice bookmarked as a way of adding catalogs once the flood has ceased.
-William from Washington, DC
“I joined Catalog Choice last year after being inundated year after year with un-asked for catalogs at the holiday time. I wanted to let you know that this year, I have received a FRACTION of the amount of catalogs that I normally get. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!”
-Debbie from Villanova, PA
“I definitely will support merchants who participate in this service. The reason I will go to these merchants first is that I support anyone who is concerned about making our world better. We are living in a time where we need to cut down on waste. As our life is simplified (in this case by removing waste), it allows for more free time to do the things we enjoy... which can mean shopping and browsing online. I visit your website and have hundreds of catalogs at my fingertips and can browse and shop without having my mailbox cluttered where there's so many that I don't even look at them. They go straight to the recycling bin, because it's overwhelming. It's easier to just put them in the recycle bin than to start sorting through. Now I can just visit the catalog I'm in the mood for when I go to your website. Thanks for this service, and I hope the merchants know we really appreciate them listening. It certainly doesn't mean I will not shop with them. I
will shop with any merchant online which is more convenient, and I'm happy to be doing something to help our environment, and working with others who have the same interest.
-Donna from Norridge, IL
“I definitely see the difference--and I'm thrilled!!! Catalog Choice is a tremendous service for the environment! Since I've been using your site to decline catalogues, I've seen a dramatic decrease in unwanted catalogue mailings. I could not be happier to see my mailbox emptied of wasted paper by the tons.”
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!! We have noticed a significant reduction of catalogs in our mailbox. You are providing a wonderful service.
-Carol and Jim
