With more than 180,000 trees planted so far on behalf of readers, authors and publishers working with Eco-Libris, it's no surprise that we think planting trees to green up books is a great idea.. But we also want to hear what readers think about it and why they believe planting trees for their books is a good idea.
So for 41 days until Earth Day, we publish here the 41 best replies we receive, one reply a day. All replies are gathered and presented on the Earth Day 2011page.
Reason no. 19:
Quite simple – to try to make up for some of the environmental impact we make when producing printed books - Marie Halkjær, Founder and Publisher at Clockwise, a Danish publishing company.
Thank you Marie for sharing with us your thoughts on planting trees for your books!
We want to mention again the great prizes we give away on this campaign, courtesy of our partners. Winners can choose their prize from a great list of gifts including audiobooks from Simon & Schuster Audio (such as The Half Life by Jennifer Weiner, Left Neglected by Lisa Genova and Essence of Happiness by the Dalai Lama) and great books, like Planet Home by Jeffrey Hollender, Spit That Out! by Paige Wolf and The Healthy Home by Dave Wentz and Dr. Myron Wentz. You can see the full list of the prizes on the campaign's page.
Every day we'll give further details on one of the prizes. Today we present you with the book This is Our World by Emily Sollinger.
This is Our World by Emily Sollinger - Join the fun on this interactive journey while learning to clean the air, reduce pollution, recycle, and more. Nine double-sided puzzle pieces are included in this book so kids can create two different puzzles!
We still have some spots available so please send us your reply to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
