Opting out is the best solution to reduce the impact of phone books. Go here to OPT OUT NOW.

The YPA opt-out warns that the request to discontinue delivery may take 12 weeks to take effect. I’m not holding my breath to see when the books stop coming, but if they do, I will be back to blog praises that the new system actually worked.

WHY THIS MATTERS

Stopping the delivery of antiquated phone books at the source is the best way to stem their environmental repercussions, which include the needless waste of paper, the energy it takes to produce them, and the CO2 emissions produced by delivering them.
