We all have a thing called…Internet!

Argos prints millions of its catalogues twice a year. Each one of those weigh around 2kgs has more than 1500 pages! A council says, if we collect all of them together it would looks like stack of 10000 double-decker buses. It’s not difficult to calculate the number of trees getting cut for this very luxury.

Agreed that a percentage of those coloured pages are recycled-papers and a percentage of catalogues goes for recycling. But before that, I don’t understand need of printing these, in first place! It’s UK, and almost everyone has internet access, and it’s obviously easy to search through internet portal rather than a book. Remember, books cannot have any “sort by” or “filter”.

The same (or bigger) is the story with Yellow pages. What’s up with these guys? Do they sign a legally binding agreement with government, that they will fell so many trees and distribute every human with a useless catalogue?
