Rather than sit here and continue to blog about questioning why people are still using the white pages phone book (aka ‘WPPB’), WhitePages has decided to get involved and take action! Today we launched BanThePhoneBook.org to help significantly reduce the unsolicited, and unnecessary, printing and delivery of the white pages phone book. The goals of BanThePhoneBook.org are simple:
- Educate others about the environmental impact of printing white pages phone books
- Encourage people to sign a petition showing their support for an ‘opt-in’ program
- Support phone companies, consumers and others in their efforts to curb the unnecessary printing and delivery of WPPB.
