Default Say "NO" to too many Cabelas catalogs

If you feel that we are discrediting ourselves as the stewards of conservation by wasting so many trees, energy, etc. by producing and rec'vng so many Cabelas catalogs go to the facebook link and voice your opinions. E-catalogs will do our earth GOOD!

It seems that I get at least something in the mail from Cabela's every 2 weeks or so. I'd like to have what they must spend on postage! I can't bitch too much, as they sent me a Cabela's Club Card and I didn't even apply for it. Then after time they went and added another $1000 to my limit. I love Cabela's!

I like getting all there catalogs. I live in Northern Idaho, just about every family up here is supported by the timber industry.

I make the majority of my income in the timber related business. I hope they double up on the catalogs.......

I pretty much shop on line at cabelas or hit one of the stores when I am traveling. All the catalogs are wasted on me.

I was elk hunting last weekend and didn't get a chance to check my PO box for 4 days. When I did there was a Cabelas Mid Winter catalog, Cabelas shooting catalog, Cabelas fly fishing catalog and a bargain cave flyer all neatly rolled up in it. So in less than 4 days I got 3 of their catalogs.

There are nice to look at but with every thing on line we really do not need it. Cutting back would save a tree.

I also enjoy the catalogues.
More so than browsing online

I like getting their BIG catalogs (maybe they do those quarterly)...good to keep by the can, but I agree, overall too many from Cabela's.

Online browsing is not as green as you think.
cant recall source but remember reading every online search uses the equivilant electricity to boil 1/2 pot of water,
so for every 2 searches you do thats enough for 1 pot of water,
and how many searches does it take before someone finds what they are looking for?

copied and pasted from online:
To put it into perspective, if you had a datacenter with 10,000 CPUs (and no overhead equipment), and you paid $0.1 per KWh, you’d be facing an electric bill of about $108,000 per month. Again, according to the NYTimes, Google has around 450,000 machines. If they used these expensive chips, they’d be churning through $4.8M per month just for electricity.
