Vanity Fair's ‘Green' Issue: Another Waste
Graydon Carter's magazine fails to print on recycled paper—again.

"There was no reason to expect that Condé Nast would actually display some sort of responsible environmental citizenship in the production of its third annual "green" issue for Vanity Fair. While they have a right to run their business as they see fit, they must also take responsibility for their lack of commitment to protecting the environment.

"The fact is that while other magazines like Shape, Fast Company, Inc. and Every Day With Rachael Ray have made important achievements in environmentally responsible publishing, Vanity Fair and CN have only "talked green" in their articles...."

But it does have Madonna in lingerie on the cover.
