Green Pages

Don’t you hate that day when you arrive home and find 10 lbs. of paper on your doorstep?  You know what I’m talking about.  Those dreaded white and yellow pages.  

As soon as I get them I promptly carry them across the street to the paper recycling bin.  Why do they print all of those things out?  It seems so wasteful.  No one ever asked me if I wanted a phone book.  If I needed one.  To be sure, some folks absolutely use and need a tangible phone book in their home.  Thanks to smart phones and my trusty MacBook, I have no use for it.  But how do I make it stop?

Check it out.  Sign up if you would like to opt out.  The idea is to make this like the no call registry.  I don’t have to take that extra trip to the recycle bin.  And somewhere a tree is thanking me.  Karma.  Love it.  

Yellow Green Pages.  What a good idea.
