Allison Carmen and Lori Campbell have formed a group called "Parents for a Cool New York." Their goal is to act swiftly to reduce global warming and make New York a better,
safer, cooler place to live, for us and for our kids.
To kick off the group, they've created the first annual "Cancel Your Catalogs" Week, Oct. 21-27. 20 BILLION catalogs are printed in the U.S. every year, almost none of them on recycled paper. The catalog response rate is less than 3%. Basically, 8 million tons of trees go straight to the landfill, with a brief stop at your house. So if the last time you ordered a monogrammed tote from LL Bean was back in 1986, cancel away!
