I have been adding newspaper to my gardens and I also use the colored ones that aren't glossy. Can I use the glossy Christmas ads we keep getting?

Would that be harmful or just fine?

Karalyn, the glossies just don't biodegrade as quickly. I am not sure that they are harmful, just that they take so long to break down.
