Raz Godelnik is interviewed on Living on Earth on how green are ebooks

Last Friday I was interviewed on the radio show Living on Earth about the subject of how green are e-books.

You can find both the transcript and the audio file of the interview, which can be downloaded in mp3 format, on Living on Earth's website.

Here's their introduction for the interview: Last year, sales of electronic readers skyrocketed in the U.S. As Raz Godelnik, CEO of Eco-Libris, tells host Bruce Gellerman, e-readers don’t use any paper, but they still have a significant carbon footprint. For some readers, traditional books are the greener option.

Living on Earth is a great show and you're invited to listen to it - it is the weekly environmental news and information program distributed by Public Radio International. Every week approximately 300 Public Radio stations broadcast Living on Earth's news, features, interviews and commentary on a broad range of ecological issues.

More resources on the ebooks vs. paper books environmental debate can be found on our website at http://www.ecolibris.net/ebooks.asp.
