Our products are made of the earth.
Since all products are ultimately made of materials from the earth, manufacturers may be said to "exploit the earth", CATALOGHOUSE, as a retailer, to "sell the earth" and our customers " to consume it".
In the present century, the resources of our earth are becoming increasingly scarce and it is time to be parsimonious with its resources.
The constitution of CATALOGHOUSE is made with Alan Thein Durning's book in mind: "How Much is Enough?: The Consumer Society and the Future of the Earth", New York: Norton, 1992. We would like you to keep the future of the earth in mind when you do your shopping with us.
We shall do our best to sell products that will not harm the earth, its plant life or animals.
We shall do our best to sell products designed to last, that can be fixed instead of being thrown away.
We shall do our best to extend the life of our products as long as possible by finding second users for them after the original owners have no further use of them.
We shall do our best to recycle products that are no longer useful.
The company shall do its utmost to limit its own production of waste and CO2.
We shall do place more emphasis on local products to encourage domestic industries.
We shall not sell nuclear weapons, smart bombs, fighter aircraft, aircraft carriers, artillery or armaments of any kind (even if they are re-usable).
