Good question, Samantha. On this site we advocate being responsible when it comes to materials use and disposal. Unfortunately, almost all things take resources and create some amount of waste. Magazines are often produced with pulp from renewable tree farms, and can be easily recycled. So if disposed of properly, magazines can be a relatively low-impact product.
