10,000 books were balanced out so far and it's just the beginning!

I am happy to update you that Eco-Libris reached another milestone - 10,000 books were balanced out so far, resulting in more than 13,000 new trees that are being planted by our wonderful planting partners SHI, AIR and RIPPLE Africa!

With the support of our growing number of customers and partners, we'll keep working hard to make reading more eco-friendly and to spread the word about sustainable reading.

Eco-Libris is operating for about six months and we're proud in what we have achieved so far. But it's only the beginning and we're aiming high - our goal is to balance out half a million books by the end of this year. We're positive that with the growing awareness to what we're doing it's doable. As Senator Barack Obama says: "Yes, we can". So, yes, we can and we will!
