Ask RiotACT

Quality childcare in a
welcoming & supportive environment

New Directory

By jbchild - 2 June 2012 23

Just received my new phone directory today – how bad can it get? It’s half-size now, with print so small you need a magnifier to read. What a waste; what a load of ****! The cover contains an article on environmental impact, etc, etc and how much paper they saved. I would like to ask this –

how environmentally friendly is a product which is UNUSABLE ???

What’s Your opinion?

Has anyone tried to use the online yellow pages recently?

Try this search ‘custom wetsuits Canberra 2601’.

Every result in in Queensland

Its a hopeless search engine. The paper version is much faster

Yes agree totally. If I’m looking specifically for a business in Canberra I don’t want to know about businesses in Qld or any other state. Quicker/easier/more accurate to just do a Google search rather than use Yellow Pages website.

Well you see there’s this great invention called the internet where one can find any phone number, and phone number you can ring to get any phone number should internet be unavailable.
Unfortunately to appease the grey vote, phone books remain.

Luckily the concerns about font size have been heard and in 2013/14, they’ll be making the fonts bigger – and therefore using more paper and ink.

Not sure how making the text smaller helps out the old folks
