Called Everyday With Rachel Ray, the subscription numbers have turned into $49 million worth of ad revenue for the first seven issues (versus $8 million over four in 2006). It’s a hot spin-off of the Rachel Ray empire — and this month she’s doing something that even Oprah (gasp!) can’t deliver: the magazine is being printed on 85% recycled paper. From the article,

“’Starting this month, we’re printing our magazine on recycled paper and saving 11,500 trees with every issue—that’s 115,000 trees a year!’ Ray wrote in the November issue’s editor’s note. ‘November is our greenest issue ever.'”

The chlorine-free recycled paper is 10 percent post-consumer waste and 85 percent post-printing waste, according to the magazine.

To reduce emissions, the magazine also switched paper mills reducing the distance between the new mill—near Chicago—and the printer by almost 900 miles. Impressive.
