The BiteDon't cheat yourself or the forest. Sign up and you'll never receive another paper phonebook. Taking notes?
- More paper for textbooks. About 540 million unsolicited phonebooks arrive at American doors annually - takes a lotta trees to make those.
- Majoring in waste reduction. Phonebooks make for about 660,000 tons of trash every year.
- Extra credit: less annoyance. Just lugging phonebooks into the house when you know you'll never use them is a pain.
Personally SpeakingNone of us have used a paper phonebook since the advent of Google SMS (send a text message to 466453 with business name and zip code, and you'll get the number and address sent to you).
