Colored newsprint

smalltowngalMay 31, 2010

Do you use newsprint with any color on it? It seems like almost every page now has color on it and it's hard to find a newspaper that is mostly black and white. I have a ton of Wall Street Journals I was hoping to use up but most of them have some color printing on it. I read somewhere that all their ink is suppose to be soy based.

As I understand it colored newsprint is printed with vegtable based ink and is non toxic. I use it regularly and have had no ill effects. I am referring to the regular pulp paper, not the slick stuff. Avoid that. It's probably the best use there is for the WSJ.

My local paper said their color and black and white was petroleum based, so it pays to ask around
