Daily Rant & Rave: Save a forest, don’t send me catalogs

RAVE To the woman who found my car keys in the restroom at Longmire at Mount Rainier and turned them in, and to the ranger who spotted my library card on the key chain, called the Eatonville branch and left me an email through the library that my keys had been found.

RANT To the furniture company that sent me a bundle of nine heavy catalogs, then claimed to be “more responsible stewards of the planet” because they sent them in one batch instead of nine separate mailings, because their paper is “forest certified,” and their shipping is “carbon neutral.” Whatever they call them, I don’t want or need these catalogs, I never shop at this store unless someone requests their merchandise as a gift, and I’m appalled at the waste of resources.
