So I thought I would give an update on my previous post about wasted telephone directories. A number of people loved the little ways we can help make the world a better place!
I wish I could report that it worked out well but it didn’t… The yellowpages were still delivered and were all sitting there on our doorstep for ages as no one wanted them! I feel bad as I know that a number of people in our apartment building had told me that went to the site and also opted out.
But we can’t be deterred by minor setbacks as trying to change the system takes time and patience. So I contacted the guys at www.yellowpagesgoesgreen.org about the issue. They promptly responded very apologetic (Not that I blame these guys!) and they gave me another site to register with as well. So here is this one as well www.yellowpagesoptout.com
After the phonebooks sat there for a while I decided to take the initiative to recycle them all. If you are in Chicago here is a great resource for what and where you can recycle. This list was put together by another passionate individual, thanks Jeff.
ps. I note that yellow pages are still rotting on everyone else’s doorsteps! We need to try harder to get the message out – we really don’t want them!
