We love birthdays (don't forget mine - August 26!) and therefore we're happy to remind you of the option to celebrate a birthday of friends, family members, colleagues and anyone you care about with Eco-Libris!
Eco-Libris is offering you to plant trees to balance out the books of your loved ones who celebrate their birthday. Not only that new trees will be planted to balance out their books, but they will also receive our stickers with a beautiful birthday card made of recycled paper.
And now, if you buy 25 trees/stickers or more you can add to your birthday gift a free green gift: $10 gift card for Strand Book Store (25 books level), Free "green" book of your choice from our list (50 books level) and $25 gift card for BookSwim, the Netflix for books (100 books level).
We also try to keep it affordable - the added charge for the birthday card is only $1.5. So for example, if you buy a gift of 50 trees/stickers, you will get for $48.5 the following:
1. 50 new trees will be planted on the behalf of the birthday celebrant. 2. The birthday celebrant will receive 50 "One tree planted for this book" stickers to put on 50 of their books and proudly demonstrate their commitment to the environment. 3. A beautiful birthday card made by Doodle Greetings (see picture above of one of their cards). Not only these cards come with a beautiful design, but they are also eco-friendly - printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper and are made chlorine-free and acid free. 4. A great book printed on recycled or FSC-certified paper of your choice, from our list that currently include Clean Body, Raw for Dessert, Greening Your Small Business, The Simple Little Vegan Dog Book, Sweet Utopia and Sustainable Sushi. All you need to do is to choose how many of trees you want to plant with us on behalf of the birthday celebrant on our special birthday gift page (http://www.ecolibris.net/birthday.asp), change the shipping address on the payment page to the address of the gift receiver and we will take care of the rest! If you prefer it, we can also send everything to you.
And of course, if it's your birthday and you want to give yourself a green gift - get yourself a nice green book and plant a tree for it with us!
