Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) October 12, 2010
Numberinvestigator.com, an online directory to find people, phone numbers and addresses, today announced its support of the messages behind Green Consumer Day, a global celebration that highlights the problems of consumerism and its impact on the environment. Numberinvestigator.com supports the effort in raising awareness on environmental impact and encourages individuals to use online directories to lookup directory information including phone numbers, cell numbers, addresses, and more to help reduce the impact of printed phone books.
According to the nonprofit YellowPagesGoesGreen.org, more than 500 million phone directories -- nearly two books for every American -- are printed and distributed every year in the U.S., requiring 1.6 billion pounds of paper (made from some 19 million trees). Some 7.2 million barrels of oil are churned through in creating them (not including the gasoline used for local deliveries). Producing the directories also uses up 3.2 billion kilowatt hours of electricity and generates 268,000 cubic yards of solid waste (not including the books themselves, many of which eventually end up in landfills in areas where recycling is not available or convenient).
Numberinvestigator.com offers consumers an easy way to go green by using its online directory to find people and people-related information such as phone numbers, cell phone numbers, addresses and other contact information. With access to one of the most comprehensive free online directories on the Web, consumers can easily find the contact information they are looking for to quickly and easily find an updated list of contact information and feel good about helping the environment.
Green Consumer Day focuses on awareness raising and the importance of recycling-reusing and reducing waste material. In “Easy Green Tips for Everyday Life”, Cindy Crawford shares some easy, green tips for consumers that demonstrate that even small changes can make a huge impact on the environment. One of her tips is to use an online phone directory to help offset the impact of phone books that make up more than 10% of waste at dumpsites.
Unfortunately, there is no centralized way for consumers to opt-out of receiving the big books like the National Do Not Call Registry for telemarketing. Most individual yellow and white page publishers have "no deliver" lists they can add you to, but they will not be held accountable if the books show up anyway. The yellowpagesgogreen.org website will find your local/regional directory pages publishers and ask them not to deliver on your behalf. The site warns, though, that there are no guarantees with this either.
Numberinvestigator.com is a leading provider of reverse phone number lookup services that enable consumers to simply search a number, including cell numbers (where available), landline numbers and VoIP to accurately find the owner of that number.
