Green Dimes & Yellow Pages

We signed up for Green Dimes when we were at Apt 345 to deal with the ridiculous amount of junk mail we received. For $20 they work with direct marketers to have your name removed from mailing lists--and they plant 5 trees on your behalf. Pretty cool.

In a newsletter they sent today, they talked about a new free service, Yellow Pages Goes Green, which allows you to opt out from receiving unsolicited phone books. Signing up was probably pointless at this stage, because I've seen how those guys deliver books at apartment buildings, and I can assure you they're paying no attention to addresses, but hey, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

And I'll definitely be revisiting both of these services when we find a new home.
