  • Facts on Catalogs

     
     
    The Ugly Truth about Print Catalogs
     

    At Equestrian Collections, we truly care about the environment.  One of the steps we have have taken away from "old school" equestrian retailers is to eliminate print catalogs.

     
     
    The Facts: (courtesy of idealbite.com )
     
    • Every American receives about sixty-three mailbox clogging catalogs per year. 
    • US catalog production uses approximately fifty-three million trees and enough water to fill 81,000 Olympic sized swimming pools each year. 
    • Americans waste about eight hours per year dealing with junk mail.
    Wouldn't you rather spend that time at the barn? What about those resources?  Those trees would shade a lot of trail rides, and that water could be used on an awful lot of hay fields in a dry year.  (And have you ever lost real mail in the every growing pile of junk and accidentally thrown it away?  We know we have!)
     
     
     
    Selling Your Information
     
    Does it seem like your print catalogs are breeding in your mailbox?  Well, in a way, they are.  Most companies that use print also buy and sell your information to other print marketers.  Problem is, just because you purchase horse equipment, and perhaps heavy duty outdoor weather gear, doesn't mean that you appreciate receiving the latest styles in duck hunting attire, or the newest dairy cattle technology!  
     
    At Equestrian Collections, we will NEVER sell your information to mail marketers!   
     
     
    But I Like Looking at Catalogs ...
     

    Truthfully, so do we!  We love beautifully put together print advertising.  We love horses, and we think there is some fantastic equestrian photography out there being used for advertising.  So, at Equestian Collections we bring you the best of the print catalogs in e-format.  Check out our e-catalogs, we think you'll love them.

    We care - So We Don't Print Catalogs
     
    However, we do have gorgeous Click to Shop ECatalogs...Equestrian Collections loves the beauty of print, the emotive feeling a great layout can bring. We like nothing better than to browse through pages of outfits, stacks of clothing, pages and pages of must have equipment for our horses.
     
    Even better, whenever we like something we can click though to buy it. Aah! The joys of instant gratification!  We can enjoy all the benefits of print with all the eco-friendly plusses that the Web can bring with Click to Shop e-Catalogs!
     
    So, we send almost no print pieces from our vendors, and we print none of our own.  We encourage all your favorite brands to make us pdfs of catalogs for you "that never see the light of print"!
     
     
    Then, take it one step further ... Ship Green, Ship Ground!
     
    In addition to our commitment to paperless catalogs, Equestrian Collections supports the smallest possible carbon footprint in delivering your package.  Ground shipping provides the least shippin carbon impact on our environment.  Depending on the variables, shipping by ground produces about one third of the carbon impact as shipping by air.  Please join us in supporting ground shipping! It's least expensive for you and better for our environment.
