Wasting Tree Sweat

I see newspapers thrown into the recycling bin every day at Grand Central. At one point, the bin had a purpose and made perfect sense: ‘let’s save trees by putting tree sweat back into more newspaper production.’ It was the complete 360.

The newspaper recycling bin today is simply outdated and contradictory. Why would you force someone to save something that’s already been saved by the digitization of paper in a Kindle?

The recycling sign should tell newspaper readers to go digital, because you can’t kill trees that have been preventively saved. After all, trees create the oxygen we need to breathe. We could not exist as people and read as readers without trees.
