Everyday with Rachael Ray goes green

Our focus is on books, but we shouldn't forget that there are other publications that consume virgin paper such as magazines and newspapers. Therefore I was very happy to read on the Environmental Leader (brought from Folio Magazine) that Everyday with Rachael Ray has announced that the magazine will be printed on 85 percent recycled paper.

According to report, Ray wrote in the editor’s note of the magazine's November issue that "Starting this month, we’re printing our magazine on recycled paper and saving 11,500 trees with every issue—that’s 115,000 trees a year!”

According to 'Everyday with Rachael Ray', the chlorine free recycled paper is 10 percent post-consumer waste and 85 percent post-printing waste, according to the magazine.

Kudos to Rachael Ray and her magazine for the bold move! We hope to see many publications following Ray's steps.
