A new book in Swedish about social entrepreneurship is going green with Eco-Libris!

We're happy to announce on a new collaboration with the Swedish publisher, Bookhouse Publishing, to plant trees for their new book with the great title “Making money and saving the world” (or in Swedish - "Tjäna pengar och rädda världen") by Erika Augustinsson and Maja Brisvall.

The new book deals with social entrepreneurship and presents examples, mainly Swedish, but also from other countries (Grameen Bank for example), and discusses the future of this form of business and it’s role in today’s economy.

It joins two other wonderful books we worked with Bookhouse Publishing on to plant trees for the printed copies - the Swedish edition of "'Creating a World Without Poverty: Social Business and the Future of Capitalism'" by Prof. Muhammad Yunus and the Swedish edition of "Getting to Scale" by Jill Bamburg.

More than 1,000 trees will be planted with Eco-Libris in Malawi, Africa by our planting partner, RIPPLE Africa, on behalf of BookHouse Publishing to balance out this edition. Inside the book you can find Eco-Libris' logo ('one tree planted for this book') with details on our vision and operations.

The book is in Swedish, so if you're speaking (and reading) the language you can check Bookhouse publishing's website for further details at The rest of us will wait impatiently to the English translation :)
