I have always been frustrated by the phone books that show up on our front porch which go straight to the recycling bin. With the internet so readily available and SO speedy we weren't using our phone books at all. Because our house is super tiny (660 square feet-tiny), space comes at a premium, so something had to go. We recycled the phone books to make room for a waffle iron.
But we were still receiving those darn phone books. It was so sad for two reasons:
1. Those poor phone books weren't being loved. Can you imagine not even getting unwrapped, let alone having your pages ruffled every once in a while? and
2. Such a waste of time, energy and resources to produce something that would go unloved (see point #1)!
Well, today I found the answer: YellowPagesGoesGreen.org
You give them your information, and they will cancel all "subscriptions" to phone books that would get delivered to your home/office/etc. Yay!
And if that wasn't enough, if you DO use your phone book, they give all kinds of great ideas of things to do with your old phone book once you get your updated set!
Check them out today and stop feeling the guilt every time you see an unused, unloved phone book in your recycling bin!
