Ban printing of yellow pages or telephone directory

This petition had 3 supporters

Already, thousands of trees are cut each year due to rampant industrialization and unplanned development or growth of cities and villages. But a larger number of trees die for being used to make paper. And yes, paper is important, but is a directory of 1000 pages really worth the life of a tree? Though no virgin paper (paper that is not directly produced but previous used or recycled paper) is used, it requires immense amounts of water and uses immense amount of energy and fuel. Is this wastage of paper worth? Do we really need the Yellow Pages or Phone Directories that lie around in the house? Do we ever use it? Why print them each year if it only goes to waste?
