Magzter’s Go Green contest saves more than 2,000 trees! Magzter’s Go Green contest saves more than 2,000 trees!

Magzter, the world's largest digital magazine newsstand, ran a unique and interesting 'Go Green' contest between September 16 and October 15, which encouraged its millions of readers across the globe to read more magazines digitally. The contest was a roaring success as readers from 190+ countries participated in it and saved more than 2,000 trees by reading all that they love on Magzter.

The winner of the Go Green contest, Mr. Adharsh Iyenggar, who read the most number of magazine pages during the contest period, walked away with a brand new iPhone 7, while nine other top readers were rewarded with US$100 gift cards each. This contest not only motivated the existing users to read more digitally, but also encouraged thousands of new readers to plunge into digital reading, which ultimately helped in saving more trees and the environment.

Magzter has a page on their website –, which showcases how much their readers are helping in saving the environment by reading digitally and saving paper and thereby trees, oil, landfill space, energy, water and air pollution.

Following the success of Go Green contest, Magzter has launched an all-new exciting contest – The Ultimate Reading Championship, on October 25. Many more exciting activities are added in this contest apart from reading magazines, which will take the readers closer to winning some fabulous prizes.

More than 10,000 people participated in the first contest and the Magzter team predicts this number to exponentially increase in the upcoming contests as more readers are increasingly switching from print to digital reading.
