"Starting with this issue, The Current is Columbia University's first green publication. Our paper is 100% Forest Stewardship Council certified 50% of it comes from recycled sources, of which 25% is post-consumer waste. No chlorine or acids were used to bleach the paper or publish the journal. We are proud to be an environmentally responsible journal, and hope to work with other campus publications and the Department of Environmental Stewardship to accelerate green publishing at Columbia.
