Printing Mundane Newspapers is Sinful

    Posted on January 26, 2016

In the Western countries, newspaper is very popular thing, a huge bundle of newspaper. Although he'll not read, the newspapermen supplies huge bundle of newspaper. And wasting of paper, printing, unnecessarily cutting the trees, for running on the paper mill. This is sinful activity. They are not reading so many nonsense books and newspapers, but paper is required, there is demand. So paper mill requires cutting of the trees unnecessarily.

(Srila Prabhupada; Room Conversation, 9 June 1976, Los Angeles)
