Reusing Magazines

How to Recycle MagazinesSometimes people ask the questions:  Are magazines recyclable?  And, why should I recycle them?  You will be glad to know that, yes, you can easily recycle magazines. The reason why you should recycle magazines is easy to answer.

The Earth’s natural resources (like trees and water) are conserved whenever products and materials are used more than once. When you learn how to recycle magazines correctly, you give them a chance for a longer life by allowing others to read them before they’re recycled into new paper products.
