June 21st – Share or donate your magazines, today. Consider starting a magazine/book swap group.

More than 2 billion books, 350 million magazines, and 24 billion newspapers are published each year, according to the EPA.   There is inconceivable importance for the transmittal of information and stories and the need to have this industry survive, but in keeping sustainability in mind, printed paper is unquestionably taxing on our environment.

Find a few friends or group to which you may belong and consider swapping your magazines and books (i.e. friends, neighbors, school parents, book clubs, etc).  The library is also always a great alternative to obtain and reuse printed material.
