The Product Stewardship Institute
(PSI) has launched a “Phonebook Opt-out Campaign” to reduce paper use. Local governments pay nearly $60 million annually to recycle or dispose of telephone directories. Unwanted phone books also pose an environmental burden: each year the industry uses an estimated 4.68 million trees worth of wood fiber, equal to 14 football fields’ worth of forest per day.
