Since I am in a 'green" state of mind I thought that I should share with you how to opt out of the Phone Book.
Every year about this time the dreaded yellow pages arrive upon my doorstep... We recieve three per year for single family house!
I no longer have a land line (only cell) and I have a free directory assistance with my phone. Also I have free access to any phone number via the internet.
These HUGE phone books collect and eventually I recycle them...
If 500 phone books are recycled, it saves:
7,000 gallons of water
3.3 cubic yards of landfill space
4,100 kilowatts of electricity, enough to power a home for 6 months
I was glad to eliminate it ll together! Call 1-877-243-8339 to opt out of receiving the DEX phone books. Call 1-800-929-3556 to opt out of receiving the Yellow Book directories. It was very easy!
HURRAY! No more phone book!
Now I just need to eliminate the rest of the paper mail that I receive everyday!
