Adding sustainable sushi to our green gifts menu

We're happy to update you that we're adding another great green book to our green gift giveaway:

Sustainable Sushi: A Guide to Saving the Oceans One Bite at a Time

Sustainable Sushi will join 5 other books that are offered as gift options for readers who will balance out 50 of their books by planting 50 trees with Eco-Libris. The list includes now Raw for Dessert, Greening Your Small Business, The Simple Little Vegan Dog Book, Sweet Utopia and Tofu Cookery.
All of these books are printed on recycled or FSC-certified paper and readers can choose from this list the book they would like to receive as a gift.

So what's Sustainable Sushi about? (from the publisher's website)
Sustainable Sushi answers the question on the minds of millions who enjoy eating fish: how can we indulge the desire to dine well while keeping our health and the health of the oceans in mind? With painstaking research found in no other book on the market to date, this pocket-size guide profiles dozens of the most common fish and shellfish one might encounter at a sushi bar, details where and how they are caught, whether or not they are safe, and how they figure in the current fishery crisis.

Written by a fishery and sustainability expert who was himself netted long ago by the allure of Japanese cuisine, Sustainable Sushi offers simple, clear explanations of such topics as mercury and PCB levels, overfishing, and species extinction. Attractively designed and featuring quick facts, maps, photos, and illustrations, the book was written for both the novice and the seasoned sushi fan. In a storm of seafood shortages and frightening statistics, Sustainable Sushi shows readers how to enjoy the sushi bar without guilt.
