The mission of Catalog Choice is to improve the efficiency of catalog distribution by reducing the number of repeat and unsolicited mailings, and to promote the adoption of sustainable industry best practices.

We aim to accomplish this mission by providing this free service to consumers and businesses. Consumers can create a private account, indicating which catalogs they no longer wish to receive in the mail. Businesses can secure a merchant account to receive a list of consumers that no longer want to receive catalogs in the mail.
