  • Always ask if it is okay to leave catalogs.
  • When you are leaving catalogs in waiting rooms, such as at hospitals, dentists, etc., write “Take me Home” on the top of the catalog.
  • If you are working with a library or a business, you can leave a Plant Sale business card with a contact person and ask him or her to call the school when they run out of catalogs.
