There’s nothing I like better than to curl up with a cup of coffee and the day’s newspaper to read about all the local happenings. But that’s not the case for many people who bounce from newspaper website to newspaper website to digest their daily dose of news. Maybe my age is showing. 🙂
Here’s an option to help me save a tree and for online news junkies to save some time. PressDisplay.com, the world’s largest online newspaper kiosk, provides instant access to hundreds of newspapers and magazines from around the world. Read any of 500+ newspapers without using any paper. Over the last few years, millions of people have used PressDisplay.com, saving more than 26,000 trees.
To celebrate Earth Day 2008 and encourage people to read digital newspaper editions, NewspaperDirect Inc., the company behind PressDisplay.com, is throwing open its digital doors and offering new users one month of free access to newspapers on PressDisplay.com when they register using offer code EARTH DAY.
On April 22, green-seeking news junkies should point their browsers (desktop or mobile) to www.pressdisplay.com to read The Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, and New York Post. Hundreds of digital editions of leading international newspapers are also available, including The Daily Telegraph, The Irish Times, The Wall Street Journal Europe, The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star and all 11 CanWest publications in Canada.
“Every hour of every day a mature tree is saved by people who choose to read their newspapers online with PressDisplay.com and with our SmartEdition e-papers,” said Alexander Kroogman, CEO of NewspaperDirect. “By some calculations it takes 17 trees to produce 1 tonne of newsprint. By using PressDisplay.com at home, at work, while commuting, or when traveling we can all reduce our carbon footprint.”
PressDisplay.com can be accessed from PCs, Macs, Blackberry devices, smart phones, iPhones, and iPod Touch devices. If you get up early enough, you can read your favorite newspaper online in PressDisplay.com before it hits the news stands.
Give it a shot on Earth Day, April 22 by using the special offer code: EARTH DAY.
