Mountain Gear Catalog & Email Spam

Ok, time for a short rant, this is something that’s been bothering me for awhile now. Is anyone else sick of all the catalogs and emails that Mountain Gear sends out? I mean, I feel like we are getting almost one a week. In an industry that pretends to be as green as possible, this is definitely not helping things. So what if it’s printed on recycled paper, you’re still wasting resources. What ever happened to one catalog per season? Especially with so many people shopping online, a printed catalog every two weeks is just a joke.

And I’m pretty sure I get at least one email a week from them. Sure, sometimes there’s a cool sale I like to know about. But for the most part, I’m just like, what? another email from Mountain Gear? Delete. I might have to start marking those messages as spam. Or maybe I should start spamming them back.

Of course, I can opt-out of their email list and tell them to stop sending me catalogs, but that wont fix the problem. Who’s in charge over there anyway?
