How about this for an environmentally-friendly proposition:

A company says it can save 1,600 tons of paper each year by discontinuing a free publication that only 11 percent of recipients actually use.

That company is Verizon, and the publication is all local White Pages directories in Virginia. The company placed an official notice in the Virginia edition of the Washington Post classifieds today, announcing that it’s lobbying the state for permission to stop sending out residential phone books. The Yellow Pages would still be printed.
