[GreenYes] Many catalogs don't use recycled paper
 According to a recent study by the group Environmental 
 Defense, many catalogs -- including those catering to the 
 outdoor crowd -- use only virgin paper. According to the 
 report, some 17 billion catalogs were mailed to consumers in 
 the US last year, some 59 for every person in the country.
