Ecological Decline of Newspapers

Steve Rubel has some interesting thoughts today on whether today’s eco-conciousness, which is partly driven by rising gas prices, may make people reconsider whether they really need a print newspaper delivered to their door every day.

Put that together with the ever-increasing quality of online experiences – including mobile – and the choice is becoming more and more clear to many.

In fact, I read Rubel’s post this morning on my Treo Smartphone while sitting in a hotel lobby that had stacks of today’s local newspaper. It made me wonder what I could do to prevent hotels from dropping a newspaper on my door every day.

Similar thoughts are popping up regarding delivery of yellow pages, unsolicited junk mail, and just about anything that takes time to process at home while making people wonder, “why am I getting this at all?”
