The Yellow Pages…

yellowpages7

So yesterday, it happened…The Yellow Pages arrived at my front door. Do you recall my recent post on wastefulness? Well, that is nothing compared to this…

There was a time when the Yellow Pages was very important. Prior to the internet, this book served as your connection to the world. No one wanted to call information and face extra charges on their phone bill, so the Yellow Pages was the go-to for getting phone numbers to any business in the area. It also contained advertisements so you could secure information about the company you are considering commissioning.

Now, I just say why? With the abundance of Yellow Pages winding up in landfills (or preferably the recycle bin) I wonder why they continue to print it. I don’t know a single person who uses this resource. Since the majority of Americans do a web search to seek information, most people immediately throw the Yellow Pages away upon seeing it on the doorstep.

Heading to the garage now…I need to recycle my Yellow Pages…

 

Stay groovy…
