For me the problem is that I want to use it but I have to have proof first
before I can use it as a certified grower that it is safe for the soil.
I want to use newspaper-paper only and as far as I know Clorine bleaching
is not been used anymore in the Netherlands. The only worry is (color)ink.
I still have to phone the newspaper to ask the question but I need a
2nd info-source as I can expect some selective silence when I ask them how
safe the ink is.
