Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

Magazine Harvest – Recycle Magazines for Literacy


Recycling the magazines and comics you love to new readers is a meaningful way 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. 

Magazine Harvest recycles your clean, gently read magazines and comics to new readers – feeding kids and families hungry to read. Bundles of recycled magazines and comics prepared by local volunteer teams are posted to our online MagPower Marketplace for selection by literacy programs.

We are currently at capacity for incoming recycled magazines and are working on moving magazines out to readers, so we can accept more recycled donations. You can volunteer here to help us find literacy needs and to set up a magazine recycling operation in your community, or submit this form so that we can keep in touch with your about the status of our recycling operations:
