Simple Suggestion #147... Opt out

Here's something for those folks who don't use their Yellowpages very often any more and don't want to see trees wasted...

The people who publish Yellowpages in Canada are allowing homeowners to opt out of having the big, heavy, yellow, advertisement-full phone books dropped on our doorsteps in March. Suits me fine, as most of the time when I need information, it's just as quick to look online because the ads in the Yellowpages can't be as detailed as a website usually is. So last year's big yellow book is likely my last.

If you find that you're in a similar boat, just click here and you'll find a webpage where you can probably opt out where you are, too, if you want to do that. It's easy, and imagine how many resources will be saved! It's another of those small, positive steps we can take to improve things around us. My thanks to fellow Master Composter/Recycler Craig for bringing this to my attention.

Goodbye, Yellowpages. It's been nice to know you, but times do change, and I'm changing with them...
