[greenyes] Recycling Catalog Information

Of the 17 billion catalogs mailed every year to American consumers (that's
59 catalogs for each and every one of us!), a surprising few contain
recycled materials.  An Environmental Defense survey released last week
found that only six of 42 major catalog companies are using significant
amounts of recycled paper, and most don't use any.  Nary a single recycled
fiber can be found in the pages of catalogs put out by big-name companies
J. Crew, Nordstrom, Sears, Williams-Sonoma, L.L. Bean, and Eddie Bauer.
Catalogs issued by Oregon-based Norm Thompson outfitters had the highest
recycled content of those companies included in the survey.
