Dex gets it right and saves a tiny bit of the environment

November 12, 2010

The other day I was driving home and noticed a mini-van loaded down with yellow pages and a person running from house to house with these books. Personally, I do not use the yellow pages. I typically have access to a more up-to-date and easier to search method of getting phone numbers called the internet. So, I put myself on the do not deliver or opt-out list with all of the yellow pages sources. So, instead of a huge pile of paper that wastes money and resources to pulp, print, process, transport, deliver, transport again, and recycle, I received a little card on the door saying that they had respected my wishes and I will not be getting a book.

Maybe next year they will deliver this information not by printing and delivering a hangtag, instead inconveniencIng a few electrons and let me know that they are thinking of me and the environment by email.
