Aug. 8, 2012, East Northport, NY — A massive online business directory for the green movement is expanding its services into the Canadian market. will allow Canadian consumers to search, review and post business directory listings while offering a viable, environmentally conscious alternative to paper-based directories.

After amassing over 27.3 million business listings in the United States alone, encompassing every conceivable type of service and consumer need, YellowPagesGoesGreen is using this success as a springboard to expand services – and the all-important “green” message – into Canada.


To date, YellowPagesGoesGreen has accumulated 1.2 million Canadian business listings, with more being added each and every day. Business owners can add and manage their own personalized directory listings, becoming a part of a vast network visited by thousands of potential customers every single day.

“While serving the business needs of both the United States and now Canada, we’re one step closer to YellowPagesGoesGreen’s overall plan of establishing the most comprehensive online business directory on the web. This expansion serves yet another vitally important cause: the spread and information war against paperless directories, most of which only waste tons of paper every year; paper that countless trees were cut down and destroyed to create, endangering the planet, its delicate ecosystems, and the very air breathed by billions in the process” said Michael Keegan, the business’s chief executive officer.

"The print phone book directory industry is paramount in the issues we face in terms of the slow destruction of the environment" said Keegan.

According to, only 22 per cent of phone book recipients recycle when disposing of them, leading to approximately 165,000 tons of phone book waste that ends up in landfills annually.

The YellowPagesGoesGreen website is also updated every day with the latest and most accurate business listings, as opposed to a phone book typically printed once per year.
