How You Can Help

For those of you who live in the United States, you can help stop the unsolicited delivery of phone books that wastes paper, trees, landfill space and energy.

If you're like me - you get tired of constantly receiving phone books, especially in an age where much of the information we need can be found on-line or with the help of our phone companies if we really need it.

The cost of delivery and disposal of these books is phenomenal with the following stats:

  • 3.2 billion kilowatts of energy are used up
  • 268,000 cubic yards of landfill are used each year
  • 7.2 million barrels of oil for processing (and this doesn't include the cost of fuel used to deliver these)
  • 1.6 billion pounds of wasted paper
  • 19 million trees harvested a year

Here's a link I used - and you can too, where you can sign up to stop the delivery of phone books to your home. As with ANYTHING - read the site and check out all the information before you sign up. This is good practice before signing anything online...


If we all pull together, we can make our world a cleaner, healthier place to live.
