My Green Resolution for 2009 - East West Bookstore

Today our search for 2009 green resolutions and wishes bring us to the heart of Silicon Valley. East West Bookstore is located in the beautiful city Mountain View in California, and we are very happy to host Surendra James Conti, the manager of the store.

East West Bookshop is a resource center for the art of conscious living. It opens doors to self-discovery, higher awareness and true understanding. East West Bookshop is participating in Eco-Libris' bookstores program, where customers at the store can plant a tree for every book they buy there and receive our sticker at the counter!

Hello Surendra. What are your green wishes and resolutions for 2009?

East West has been committed to the greening of America since our opening in 1980. Whether in times of prosperity or recession, it is vital that we, as a nation and individually, serve the causes that promote a healthy planet. Eco-Libris is a concept that deserves our support, and we urge every reader to invest an extra dollar in its noble purpose when purchasing a book. A little goes a long way.

Thanks, Surendra!

East West Bookstore is located at 324 Castro Street, Mountain View, California 94041. You are welcome to visit their website - You're also invited to read the interview with Surendra we published last April.
