Where Else Could It Go?

Consider donating your old magazines to a healthcare clinic or dentist's office. Be sure to call first and find out if the office can use the quantity and type of reading material that you have.

Ways to Reduce or Reuse

Switch to digital! Many magazines offer digital-based subscriptions, so you can enjoy the same content online, without all the paper or shipping involved.

Save old magazines and catalogs for arts & craft projects such as paper collages.
