“There’s one thing that we need in order to ensure that future generations are safe from the scourge of pollution and climate change, and that’s young men and women who are intent on pursuing careers in the environmental sciences,” said YPGG CEO and President, Michael Keegan. “The environment has sustained countless years of abuse at the hands of corporations and the only way to combat the damage is through supporting the next wave of environmental engineers, scientists, and preservationists, and that’s why we have instituted this scholarship contest. I invite any dedicated young students to get involved and submit their essay application.”
Yellow Pages Directory Inc., owner of both YellowPagesGoesGreen.org and PaperlessPetition.org, offers an environmentally-friendly Web-based alternative to paper telephone directories while providing a simple and convenient mechanism for customers to opt out from the receipt of printed yellow books. Both web sites have been instrumental in promoting opt-out awareness across the United States over the past several years, and allowing users to reduce their own environmental footprints in the process. Yellow Pages Directory Inc. has also taken steps to reduce its own impact on the environment through the use of the most up-to-date and energy-efficient web-hosting services available.
