Read A Book, Plant A Tree

I think this is an excellent way to enjoy books and contribute back to the environment and the source of books!

Hey, we know you love books. Who doesn’t? But what about all the trees that are used to produce the paper for these books? About 20 million trees are being cut down EVERY YEAR to produce the books sold in the U.S. alone. What can you do about it? Well, here’s a suggestion: stop reading… NO, NO. just kiddin’.

A better solution would be to start planting trees for all the books you read. To let you do just that, we thought up Eco-Libris, a means to balance out the paper in your books by planting trees. To maximize your impact, the trees will be planted in developing countries benefiting both the environment and local communities.

For every book you balance out, we will send you an Eco-Libris sticker to put on your book cover, displaying your commitment to sustainability and perhaps even inspiring others to become more responsible about their use of natural resources (in case you were wondering – the sticker is made of recycled paper with non-toxic ink… oh, and the thank you note too, and yeah, even the envelope).

So let’s take the first steps towards sustainable reading, together. It’s simple, it’s affordable, and there’s no need to wait, you can do it right now.
