Paste Magazine Increases Commitment to Recycled Paper Use
Paste magazine, an independent entertainment magazine now in its fifth year, announced this week that it will be printed on 30-percent post-consumer recycled paper beginning with its November issue. This marks an increase of 10 percent over the magazine’s current paper.
The result of this change in paper will help save 2,000 trees per year and will conserve an amount of energy equal to what it takes to power more than 50 homes. “Shifting to 30-percent post-consumer recycled content paper is a small price to pay to help our future,” says Nick Marino, managing editor of Paste, adding that he hopes other magazines make similar such changes to their own paper-use policies. “Our hope is that other magazines will join in our commitment to recycling. As more publications get on board, the price of recycled paper will go down and the quality of the paper will go up.”
“The music world contributes greatly to a variety of global causes,” says Josh Jackson, editor-in-chief of Paste. “At Paste, we like to put a spotlight on these artists and organizations, but in this particular case, we want to look inward, and do our part.”
