PSA: Telephone Directory Waste

Who still uses their Yellow Pages local directory? Really, when was the last time you actually looked up a phone number or a service in there? Be honest.

Or, are you like 99.3% of the population who just hits google on their smartphone, and off you go? Or checks out Yelp for reviews. For the last 10 years or so, we would get our new directory in the early spring, recycle the old one, and put it on a shelf, never to be opened.

Lather, rise, repeat.

How wasteful.

Now though, you can opt out of receiving directories. The website YellowPagesOptOut will let you select which directories you want (probably none), and suddenly, this anachronism of the 19th century will be banished from your home.

On, and you can do your part to reduce the 1,400,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

Seems like a no brainer to me.
