Recycle Magazines for Literacy

Recycling the magazines and comics you love to new readers is a meaningful way for consumers and publishers to end illiteracy and poverty, worldwide. With titles for every reading age, interest, and language, magazines and comics are the most powerful literacy engines in the planet. 

We will recycle your clean, gently read magazines and comics to new readers – feeding kids and families hungry to read. Bundles of recycled publications are prepared by local volunteer teams to meet needs sent in by literacy programs, such as food pantries, homeless and domestic violence shelters, youth mentoring and job training programs, foster care, and teachers for at-risk readers.

Please submit this form so that we can contact you about receiving your magazines and comics:

 

You can volunteer here to help us find literacy needs and to set up a magazine recycling operation in your community.

Literacy programs can get magazines here.

Thank you!
