Kudo’s to Valley YP
Missed an opportunity to commend Valley YP for their efforts noted in a late November release which contained the following (I have added bold highlighting to key comments):
The new eco-friendly Napa Valley Yellow Pages directory is currently being distributed to over 50,000 area businesses and households. Valley Yellow Pages’ eco-friendly approach developed a more environmentally friendly product. All Valley Yellow Pages directories have always been 100% recyclable, but now the new Napa directory is printed using 35% recycled materials, recyclable soybean-based ink as well as recyclable glue! “Not only are we committed to providing our customers with a convenient and user-friendly tool for finding local information, but we are also dedicated to protecting the environment,” states Sieg Fischer, President and CEO of Valley Yellow Pages. “By constantly refining the composition of our directories, we are contributing to the commitment of recycling and saving the environment.”The Napa Valley Yellow Pages directory features a comprehensive Recycling Guide, found under “R” in the yellow pages. This guide provides information on business and residential recycling programs as well as information on recyclable products. Curbside Collection and Drop-off Locations are also listed in the guide, making it easy for consumers to recycle. Valley Yellow Pages has partnered with the City and County of Napa to become increasingly more ecologically conscious. The Recycling Guide is funded by the City and County of Napa, NRWS/NCRWS, Upper Valley Waste Management Agency, Napa-Vallejo Waste Management Authority, California Integrated Waste Management Board and the California Department of Conservation.
Consumers can also visit www.MyYP.com for an online directory of local businesses. This site features the same community-based content as the printed book, but also includes the ability to click through to an advertiser’s website. Through MyYP.com, residents now have access to Valley Yellow Pages information at their fingertips anywhere, anytime.
Congrats to Valley for spreading the word on what they are doing to be eco-friendly…
