Online directory alternative offers a positive green impact while allowing consumers to quickly and easily search through a complete database of businesses located in the United States.

The traditional method of finding local services through Yellow Page directories can now be cut reduced — helping to save millions of trees which are cut down annually —through, an online Directory service. Consumers as well as businesses can search, list a organization, and/or comment about experiences with local businesses on the site at no charge.

“People today feel a greater sense of responsibility for the environment and are looking for opportunities that promote a greener earth,” says the owners of the web site.

The Interactive Cities website features a local search engine and Yellow Pages system which lets consumers search through a complete database of businesses located in the United States. In fact, the site boasts a database containing nearly 27 million of these local listings. It also seems conveniently organized by state and local community, and provides access to these listings throughout the United States. Consumers search the database through the user-friendly, graphical interface map of the United States by clicking on a state, navigating downward to the community and industry their seeking. Or they can utilize the powerful search engine functionality by entering city, state, and zip code, or type of business.

Two boxes located at the top of the page make this searching quick and easy. Enter the name or type of business in one box, the zip code in the other, and click on "FIND IT". You’re instantly presented with a comprehensive listing of local providers with their address and telephone numbers. Click on the name and get additional information about each business specifically, as well as comments and ratings along with a Google map showing its exact location. Need to know a particular zip code? The zip code finder tells you when you identify the state and the city. "It’s easier to use than other online zip code finders and makes book-marking and visiting the site worth it by itself", says the owners of Interactive Cities.

There are about 540,000,000 yellow page directories printed every year in the United States. The process wastes 7,200,000 barrels of fossil fuel, burns up 3.2 kilowatt hours of electricity, and destroys more than 19,000,000 trees annually.

“We’ve created an efficient, easy to use alternative to paper Yellow Book Directories,” says the owners of Interactive Cities. “Now if more people use this service and ask their local Yellow Pages suppliers to stop delivering books, we can all contribute to a greener planet.”
