    As in most cities in the Western US, our newsprint supplier cuts no trees for newsprint. Fiber is obtained 40% from recycled newsprint and 60% from industrial waste: wood chips off the sawmill floor. Can’t get greener than that. Contrast that with the fish, birds and frogs who’ve given their lives in the polluted streams left behind by the manufacture and disposal of a PC or cell phone… Save a fish, say yes to newsprint!

    Hi, interesting concept – how do you get 6 million daily visitors?

    Would love to know – google gives you about 14,000 / day

    BTW how do the trees work?

    my pc (and a lot of the it-equipment needed to bring your website to my pc) is powered by energy that is obtained by burning coal. Coal is made of (old)trees did you consider that in your calculation? No offense, i like your site but not for the green image you adorn yourself with but for the not existing price of 2,4€ my fav newspaper normaly costs me per day. 😉

    This site is very useful. Not only am I getting the daily paper without leaving the bedroom, it has that added bonus of saving trees. That always gives me a fuzzy feeling inside.

    I love your site and am a member. Is it possible to display the Deccan Herald newspaper from Bangalore, India? It’s one of the leading newspapers of India and am surprised it is not on your list.

      Thanks for your comment, Gerald. I’ve forwarded your request to our Publishing Department.

      I’d also suggest emailing the publisher directly about the possibility of making the Deccan Herald available through You’d be surprised how far an email from an avid reader can go!

    you cannot say that your job save trees and newspapers kill trees for the simple reason that the paper industry would not exist today if they do that.
    forest and trees are their capital assets. it is all the contrary : the cut are calculated and the forest are cleaned and regenerated by their works, factories are strongly environemntaly oriented and very often they run with their own energy. do you know that in France the forest spaces are growing and growing. what do kill the trees and forest : this palm trees (and soja, …). look at the map of borneo island : here and twenty years later. the primary forest is destroyed and replaced by palm trees to give us palm oil you find in the food today.
    also and to finish, just compare the footprint of the millions of smartphones and computers to newspaper industry ?
    green ideas often are not so true than they appears. But you idea is great and it is really praticle to have its favorite newspaper on the PC it’s really complemetary to paper !! No paper world is not arrievd
