Green Yellow Pages

You can stop getting unsolicited copies of the yellow or white pages dropped off automatically several times a year, by visiting this organization’s YellowPagesGoesGreen Web site and signing up to be taken off the list.  Why? Directories are available online and the waste of trees and energy from printing these books which many people don’t ever use is just filling up many landfills (NOTE: the Yellow/White Pages Industries DO encourage recycling of their old books.)  Perhaps keep one solicited copy in case your internet connection goes down, but you don’t need several dropped off during the year.  This is similar to the National No-Call Registry.   (thanks Valerie Y. for this info!)

    I had written my own blog entry recently about phone books and my frustration in how often they are delivered. Any ideas on a Canadian comparison? I’ll check out the site you suggested and maybe they’ll have a link.

    Thanks!

    We seem to be ok doing billions of google searches a day, yet have issues with Yellow Pages, which are one of the most extensively used books in the world to search.

    “Performing two Google searches from a desktop computer can generate about the same amount of carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle for a cup of tea, according to new research.
