Eco-Libris is collaborating with Dutch author Annet Struik

We are happy to announce on a new collaboration of Eco-Libris with the Dutch author Annet Struik. Eco-Libris will partner with Struik to plant 1,000 trees for the first edition of her new book "52 vonken".

The book is in Dutch and it's actually the first book we balance out in Dutch so we're very excited about it. If you know Dutch (lucky you!) and you want to learn more what's this book is about, you're welcome to check the following link: . The rest of us will have to wait to the English transaltion :)

Eco-Libris will work with its planting partners to plant 1,000 trees (actually 1300 trees will be planted to make sure that at least 1,000 trees will reach maturity). Our planting partners are three highly respected US and UK registered non-profit organizations that work in collaboration with local communities in developing countries to plant these trees.
These trees are planted in high ecological and sustainable standards in Latin America (Nicaragua, Guatemala, Panama, Belize, Honduras) and Africa (Malawi), where deforestation is a crucial problem. Planting trees in these places not only helps to fight climate change and conserve soil and water, but also benefits many local people, for whom these trees offer many benefits, such as improvement of crops and additional food and income, and an opportunity for a better future.
