    What do you do with your phone book?

    a - bin it
    b - bin it in recycling
    c - use it to light fires in the garden

    sign petition establish a centralised opt-in system for receiving phonebooks.

    true or false
    they used 2 million yellow pages under the M6 Toll Road
    .
    False - It was Mills and Boon Books
    ***
    75 million phonebooks are produced and delivered each year, amounting to an estimated 75,000 tonnes of annual waste, enough to cover Hyde Park twice! Add in the cost of manufacturing, delivering and recycling phone books, this equals a totally unnecessary and avoidable environmental burden. The estimated amount of resources wasted include:

    680,000 barrels of oil (not including petrol wasted during delivery) 2 billion litres of water (not including water wasted in the recycling process) 437 million kilowatts of energy (not including the recycling process) equates to enough energy to power 112,000 three bedroom houses for a year

    Another pointless petition.

    I might start a petition to ban them, but that might cause a paradox in space and time.
