This has been around for some time now. An ePaper is the digital version of your daily newspaper such that you can view it over the internet exactly as it is published. A simple one time registration lets you read each and every article, advertisement, etc. on the paper in real time.

Here is a list of some of the Indian newspapers that are available as ePapers:

  Aandhra Bhoomi
  Asomiya Pratidin
  Daily Thanthi
  Dainik Bhaskar
  Dainik Jagran
  Deccan Chronicle

  Deccan Herald

  Divya Bhaskar
  DNA (Daily News & Analysis)
  Economic Times
  Financial Express
  Hindustan Hindi
  Hindustan Times
  Indian Express
  Mid day
  Mumbai Mirror
  Prabhat Khabar
  Rajasthan Patrika
  The Asian Age
  The Financial Express

  The Hindu
  The Kashmir Times
  The New Indian Express
  The Pioneer
  The Siasat Daily
  The Telegraph 

  The Times of India
  Vijya Karnataka
  Vijya Times

What has this got to do with the Environmemt? A lot actually. First, if the ePaper concept catches on, we may need to publish (‘on paper’) less of newspapers.

Second and more importantly, several organisations, institutes, etc. keep track of news/events by cutting articles from the newspaper and maintaining a scrapbook. With the ePapers in vogue, we can now think of having digital scrapbooks and the entire newspaper can be returned to be recycled thus minimising the cutting of trees.
