Go green without having to recycle your newspaper
Laura Chesner Staff Writer [email protected] Many ecologists have said that reducing one’s carbon footprint can be as easy as changing one small thing that reduces waste. Reading your newspaper online saves valuable resources, decreases pollution and is inexpensive. The Robertson County News offers two ways to get your news online. The Editorial staff updates the Robertson County News website weekly with a partial look at the weekly paper. If you already have a paper subscription, then you can get a username and password and get a look at the full paper for no extra price. But for the person who wants to really go green, a paperless newspaper subscription is available to anyone for less than a yearly subscription that comes in the mail. “We here at the Robertson County News know that many of our subscribers care about the environment and want to do something to reduce waste,” said Publisher Dennis Phillips. “This is why we want to provide every opportunity to our readers to choose how they receive their newspaper. The website includes only a portion of what is in the newspaper, but the e-edition looks exactly like the print edition. It includes all of our reader’s favorite sections, from classifieds to the picture pages, and it reduces paper waste. If you haven’t started a subscription and would like an online only subscription, you can sign up on the website at www.robconews.com and clicking on the “subscribe now” button. It not only saves precious resources, it also saves money. The yearly subscription for the e-edition is only $28.00 a year. “The website will still be a great place to get breaking news and connect with other readers, but the e-edition will still be the best place to keep up with what is happening in the community every week,” said Phillips.
