WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Erik Feliciano with AT&T stopped by WECT News First at Four on Thursday to recommend some apps that can help you go green for Earth Day, and the rest of the year.

For people who are tired of getting catalogs in the mail, Catalog Choice lets you click on the catalogs you want to eliminate and they will contact the companies you wish to stop receiving mail from. 

Another junk mail eliminator, Mail Stop Mobile, allows you to take a photo of the mail you want to stop receiving and then they will do the rest.

iRecycle helps find local recycling opportunities whether you're at home or on the go. iRecycle provides access to more than 1.5 million ways to recycle over 350 materials. After providing your location, the app will show you collection sites with all of the materials collected so you can find anything from where to recycle your Christmas tree to paint, electronics and plastics.

Seafood Watch helps you choose ocean-friendly seafood at your favorite restaurants and stores. Users can learn more about the seafood they're eating. 

JouleBug shows people how they can use resources without using them up. It notifies your app community whenever you do something sustainable so you can encourage your friends by sharing how you're making a difference and following what they're up to as well.

The GoodGuide app tells you whether products are safe, healthy, green and socially responsible while you shop. The app's barcode scanning feature lets you access their science-based health, environment and social ratings for more than 170,000 products.
