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:
DNA (Daily News & Analysis)
The Asian Age
The Financial Express
The Kashmir Times
The New Indian Express
The Siasat Daily
The Times of India
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.
