So says John Lusk, spokesperson for the Ban The Phone Book movement, whos working to get the White Pages out of full circulation and made only available by request.
In doing so, five million trees would be saved from being cut down every year to create the phone book, and $17 million in taxpayers money could be saved for better things.
Lusk argues that theres no reason to continue printing the White Pages since there are other greener, more cost- effective means to get phone numbers, like the Internet and cell phone applications.
He assures that not only would taxpayers wallets and Mother Earth benefit from a phone book ban, but people wouldnt have to deal with the frustration of getting rid of the stack of phone books dropped on their doorstep every few months.
