TCnbc Magazine - 21

More and more people are adopting the 'green' life in an attempt to save our planet. They decline plastic bags at the supermarket and request their bills online rather than the traditional 'statement in the mail'.

Yes, this has taken it's toll on some industries - one being the US Postal Service - but it has benefitted our planet.

For every 60 glossy magazines that are produced, one tree must die and sadly, after one, perhaps two or even three people have read that magazine, it is trashed or recycled.

More and more people prefer reading the news and their favorite magazines on Kindle, Nook or Smartphone, if not on computer.

TCNBC is proud to offer corporate magazines which focus solely on YOUR company's achievements, awards and offerings, which can be shared - at not extra cost - with all staff members and then e-mailed to their Sphere of Influence. THIS IS VIRAL MARKETING AT IT'S CHEAPEST AND BEST!

SOME TYPICAL CALCULATIONS

1 ton of uncoated virgin (non-recycled) printing and office paper uses 24 trees

1 ton of 100% virgin (non-recycled) newsprint uses 12 trees

A "pallet" of copier paper (20-lb. sheet weight, or 20#) contains 40 cartons and weighs 1 ton. Therefore,

1 carton (10 reams) of 100% virgin copier paper uses .6 trees

1 tree makes 16.67 reams of copy paper or 8,333.3 sheets

1 ream (500 sheets) uses 6% of a tree (and those add up quickly!)

1 ton of coated, higher-end virgin magazine paper (used for magazines like National Geographic and many others) uses a little more than 15 trees (15.36)
