Yellow Pages Makes Steps To Go Green
Long time readers will remember our angst about the waste the Yellow Pages directories make on the sidewalks of New York. Unwanted, the majority of the big books in the city end up as waste. We were so fed up by the situation it prompted us to set up our green site back in 2004 called eco.psfk.com (later folded into the Environmental category). Recently we noticed a new statement by the Yellow Pages people telling folks about the steps it has been taking:
Yellow Pages publishers and suppliers have invested in large capital projects to minimize the industry’s environmental impact. Due to more than a decade of close collaboration between Yellow Pages publishers and paper suppliers, directory components now include soy-based rather than petroleum-based inks and nontoxic dyes that pose no threat to soil or groundwater supplies.
