Do you compost? If you’re a gardener or someone who feels strongly about environmental issues, chances are that you do. (If it’s something you’d like to try, here’s a pretty good how-to guide.)

While composting has a striking number of upsides, there is one (rather mild) downside: from time to time, the composting items can carry a bit of a, well, somewhat unpleasant smell. Paper Shop to the rescue!

Because every edition is printed on non-glossy newsprint, old issues of Paper Shop are incredibly reusable. Shredded pages of our book can be added to your compost bin; the paper will break down naturally and also minimize any odors.
