The free and automatic distribution of phonebooks is supposed to be a public service, but it's actually a detriment to the appearance of our streets and to the environment. Apart from merely creating litter, printing so many books is hugely wasteful. The number of phonebooks delivered annually outnumbers the entire population of the U.S. by two to one. When more convenient, up-to-date, and paperless directory options are available online, we have to ask ourselves why so many phonebooks are still being printed.(Though the City of Charlottesville appears to be fine with the practice. The current crop is from "Your Community Notebook". Previously)
Luckily, this problem hasn?t escaped notice by municipal and state governments.--Next American City
