Each year, 19 billion catalogs are mailed to American consumers, using 3.6 million tons of paper from 53 million trees. To create that much paper, 38 trillion BTUs are used — enough to power 1.2 million homes per year, which contributes 5.2 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere, equal to the annual emissions of two million cars.
