Going Green! Recycling Magazines

Magazines are one of those items that confuse folks when it comes to recycling. I think it’s their glossy quality. However, take heart because most recycling centers do accept glossy magazines for recycling. Check with your local recycling center to be sure.

That said, if you’ve got a surplus, recycling at a center is not your only option. There are plenty of ways to creatively use those old magazines…

With the holidays right here upon us you can make some killer recycled gift bows with magazines OR simply choose the most colorful and festive pages to wrap gifts with.

Organiz an excellent full color cookbook on the cheap.

Hand them over to your kids for a cool recycled dollhouse.

Make stylish furniture. If teens can do it so can you.

Crumple it up and use it to ship holiday gifts with.

Make the coolest garbage can ever! I love this ironic plan because you’re keeping magazines out of the trash by making a trash holder with them!
