To correct something related by the video: “Shiny paper,” known in the printing trade as enamel-coated stock, is made shiny-smooth by a coating of clay. Newspaper inks, whether black or colored, are made primarily from soy these days and pigmented by organic sources. In other words: not “toxic.” A plastic-looking coating on high-end printed pieces, known as “spot varnish,” is made from acrylic resins, which would not break down as quickly as you would want a seed-starter pot to do in the garden, so don’t use that Mercedes-Benz CL 600 brochure. ~ JB
