Environmental pitch for magazines

What is environmentally better than buying a book or magazine? Buying it online to either read on the Internet or download to read on your computer. No muss, no fuss, no scattered magazines lying around taking up space, no magazines to throw in a landfill.

From a strong pitch last week by Zinio on the environmental benefits of digital magazines.

    Yeah,Yeah,Yeah. BUT Magazines are basically bio-degradable, where is a computer is not.

    I have no reports/data on what is at the “end of the day” better for the environment but I personally think it could be quite close.

    Fuels burn while you make both of them, but only fuel burns while you read online.

    I’d rather buy something I can hold.
