Thanks to a tip from Trever, a Good Human reader, Paperless Petition has been found and it is a good place to start to getting the phone companies to start an “on-demand” delivery system instead of a “let’s throw one of these 25 pound books on every doorstep in America, even if they don’t want it” policy. I was thinking of starting a petition site, but looks like someone beat me to it:
“The Yellow Pages industry dropped 540 million printed directories this year. That’s more than one per person. With the Internet available literally in our hands, is this acceptable?
Like the printed encyclopedia, the obsolescence of the printed Yellow Pages is inevitable. However, considering that in the U.S., 97% of this $14 billion industry is derived from their print division alone, these mammoth media dinosaurs will hold on for as long as possible.
PaperlessPetition.org will expedite an end to this needless environmental waste, educate consumers on free and easy alternatives, and shed light on the growing inaccuracy of readership statistics that drive advertisers to still invest in this antiquated medium.”
Go take a look and sign the petition if you want your name off the phone book delivery list!
