Do they still print those big thick phone books? I haven't seen one in ages. They used to deliver them to your door and I don't remember how we got rid of the old ones.
My sister-in-law keeps the Houston phone books on a table by her chair and uses them religiously. That would be because she's never learned to use a computer.
Give that a little thought. How many trees have to die to make all those paper phone books? I want the people who don't use computers to be able to have paper phone books but isn't that an awful amount of waste given how many people today have phone numbers available on their cell phones?
I don't know how phone companies would know who needed phone books and who didn't but it sure seems a waste of resources if they're still cranking them out for every customer.
Do you still receive paper phone books? Would you miss it if it ceased to show up at your door? Oops, there I go cutting jobs.
