Academic All American Basketball Player Takes on Corporate Wasters

Kansas City, Missouri (PressExposure) June 26, 2008 -- Telephone directory companies profit billions of dollars every year through the delivery of unsolicited phone books.‭ ‬These paper monsters are big,‭ ‬bulky,‭ ‬heavy and undesired by the majority who receive them‭ ‬-‭ ‬and everybody receives them.‭ ‬In fact,‭ ‬there are over‭ ‬520‭ ‬million delivered to every city,‭ ‬large and small,‭ ‬across‭ ‬America every year.‭ ‬That's just about‭ ‬2‭ ‬for every man,‭ ‬woman,‭ ‬adolescent,‭ ‬child and baby‭!

Philip Cantwell is an Oxford-educated,‭ ‬Academic All American Basketball player and he has plans to deliver something quite different:‭ ‬a paperless future‭ ‬-‭ ‬at least as far as telephone directories are concerned.‭ "‬The fact is that these bulky books most often end up in our trash cans and then in landfills which are already far overfilled.‭ ‬The American population is taking a solid stand for the incorporation of green living standards and we are here to help them.‭"‬,‭ ‬Cantwell says.

Cantwell developed the idea to begin his organization,‭ ‬http://www.YellowPagesGoesGreen.org after he witnessed his coaching staff looking for a phonebook to order pizzas on a return trip from a game.‭ ‬He demonstrated how simplistic it is to enter a search on your iPhone and had the results within seconds.‭ ‬He thought about the new technologies available and wondered why hundreds of millions of non-versatile,‭ ‬7-pound number catalogs are still being forced on every living human in the country‭ ‬-‭ ‬whether they want them or not.

‭"‬People who have no interest in these telephone directories still receive them regularly.‭"‬,‭ ‬Cantwell explains.‭ "‬Then,‭ ‬if they don't want to contribute to the landfill problems,‭ ‬it is up to them to take them to be recycled.‭ ‬This in turn causes unnecessary usage of fossil fuels to deliver these unsolicited wastes of natural resources to the recycling station‭ ‬-‭ ‬not to mention the energy used to recycle them.‭ ‬[http://www.YellowPagesGoesGreen] offers them a very simple solution.‭"

When you visit the website,‭ ‬you are presented with fun-to-read environmental trivia and other interesting news.‭ ‬To notify the publishers to opt out from the telephone directory mailing lists,‭ ‬you simply fill in a very basic form and hit submit.‭ ‬The site administrators do the rest for you.‭ ‬That's it.‭ "‬We are here to give everyone just a little more reason to go green and embrace a paperless,‭ ‬sustainable future here on Earth.‭ ‬Cantwell says,‭ "‬People should have the right to remove themselves from these mailing lists‭; ‬not just be redirected and forgotten.‭"
