For more much of the population, when phonebooks are delivered to your home they are either left out on the doorstep to ruin, or tucked away in a cupboard until the next one arrives.
In addition to the enormous production and distribution resources expended annually on 75,000 million tons of phonebook waste, let's not forget that by the time a phonebook is delivered its already out of date. With thousands of families moving each week and hundreds of businesses closing, only an online directory can deliver truly current information.
Internet directories provide nationwide coverage, are easy to search, are updated daily, give the option of using for larger sized fonts, and most importantly, are free and available to anyone online. For those that do not have online access, there it is always possible to request a phone book.
Sign this petition against the automatic delivery of phonebooks and stop the waste.
