Strand's customers are going green!

We are very proud in our collaboration with Strand Book Store, New York's independent landmark book store. Strand are taking part in our bookstore program and customers at the store can plant a tree for every book they buy there and receive our sticker at the counter!

Now we're even more proud to update you that as of last month Strand Book Store's customers balanced out 999 books they bought at the store which resulted in 1,299 new trees! These trees are planted with our planting partner RIPPLE Africa in Malawi, Africa.

Strand are celebrating their customers' support of the environment with a new poster you can find all over the store. You can also see the beautiful poster right here:

So if you're in New York, don't forget to visit Strand. With their tremendous selection of more than 2.5 million used, new and rare books, I can assure you a great experience!

Strand's address is: 828 Broadway (at 12th St.) New York, NY 10003. You're also welcome to check out their website at (and don't miss their impressive list of events).
