Magazines Galore

We see them everywhere! Whether in waiting rooms, break rooms, offices, mail boxes, lobbies, and more, magazines are not scarce. In fact, they have been around since 1663, when the world's first magazine, Edifying Monthly Discussions, was published in Germany. Many popular magazines that we read today have experienced longevity. National Geographic first appeared in 1899, Reader's Digest started publishing in 1922, and the New Yorker arrived in 1925.


There is something that ALL of these magazines have in common. Can you guess it? Wait for it...they're all recyclable!


There are paper mills that blend recycled magazines with recycled newspaper to make new newsprint! Magazines are important in the recycling process, because their high clay content is used to remove inks from paper before new paper products are made. So when you've thoroughly enjoyed reading your magazines, and they become outdated, don't forget to recycle them!

A national recycling rate of 30% reduces greenhouse gas emissions as much as removing nearly 25 million cars from the road.
