Free online magazine subscriptions

Are you trying to go green but you don’t want to give up your magazine subscriptions? Zinio.com allows you to view the pages of hundreds of magazines right on your computer screen

And their current Read Green initiative lets you try out a subscription to one of those magazines for free.

I tried out Hawaii magazine, because I am planning a trip to Hawaii this winter. Here’s what the pages look like:

For a magazine like this, the ads are just as much content to me as the articles, so I appreciated being able to read the magazine in this format.

As we all strive to be more green and continue to offer more and more specialty publications, it might be worth looking at a partnership with Zinio.
