Those darn yellow pages
Today was just beautiful here so we enjoyed ourselves outside for a good while! The next two days are supposed to be extremely nice too so we'll have to take advantage of it while we can!
Alright friends, so every once in awhile we get that massive yellow book on our porch and every single time we put it straight into the recycling bin...You too??? Not so green, is it? We just don't have a use for it. I am sure there are many people that still use them (like my sweet Mommy) but we just don't. I really do not like that we get them unsolicited in the first place as it's alot of wasted paper. If people want one, they should have to ask for it, right?
But anyway, when I saw this grassroots campaign called Yellow Pages Goes Green recently, it made me very happy and I immediately "opted out" of receiving the yellow and white pages here at their website. They will contact the publishers with the names of whomever opts-out, BUT the publishers are not currently liable if they continue to send the books to you unfortunately. The campaign's goal is to get the industry to stop the 540 million books they are currently delivering unsolicited on their own (uh-huh). If that doesn't work, they want to get a National No Delivery Register set up (like the National Do Not Call one). So hopefully it works, but we'll see. It certainly is worth a shot as it's free and only takes a minute...
I've gotten tagged here twice so maybe Friday I'll do a little of that for fun...and then I have that darn birthday party post of Lovebug's that has been sitting in my Draft folder forever so maybe Monday on that one. Hope everyone's weeks are going well! It's already Wednesday...WOW!
