Divers Direct, the world’s largest retailer of scuba gear, announced today it will not publish a traditional printed-paper catalog this summer for its dive gear.

In a world where consumers are increasingly internet savvy, one of the world's premier retailers of scuba and snorkel gear has made the decision to "go green" and not produce a printed version of its summer offers.

"It just makes sense. The majority of our customer base does its research online, and most of them subscribe to our newsletter, so they really don't need the extra bulk of paper in their mailbox," said Kevin Senecal, CEO, Divers Direct. "Our business is based largely on people who are eco-friendly, and this step will reduce our carbon footprint by eliminating the use of almost 40,000 pounds of paper."
