Everything that you can find in a phone book can be found on the Internet. That and much, much more. Yet, every year, without fail, phone books are delivered to most people in the United States. Thousands upon thousands of phone books are thrown out every year as the new books arrive in the mail. Alex from Shedworking decided to use the disposal of phone books as an example of sustainability.
The Phone Booth is a shed built using about 7,000 discarded phone books. But it’s not only the walls that are packed with directory information. Even the support beams are made from phone books which were laminated together to form the structural support of the roof. Anyone who has ever attempted to rip a phone book in half knows that the thick tomes are up to the task.
