Our green gift giveaway: free green books and gift cards for Strand Bookstore and BookSwim

Last month we started a new green gift campaign, where we give readers who balance out 25 books or more by planting trees great gifts that promote green reading! And these are really great gifts - from free green books to gift cards for Strand Bookstore and BookSwim, the Netflix for books.

So what's the idea? well, For over two years Eco-Libris has been offering eco-conscious readers the opportunity to balance out their books by planting trees. At the same time our company has worked to promote sustainable reading, and reduce books' impact on the environment. So now we're combining the two, with a special giveaway that rewards customers with green gifts that promote green reading, from gift cards for Strand Bookstore and BookSwim to free "green" books, which are printed on recycled or FSC-certified paper.

The campaign will run through 2010 and we hope it will help forward our efforts making reading more sustainable. With all the current hype around
the iPad it's still important to remember that over 95% of all books sold are printed on paper and hence the ever-growing importance of making physical books more sustainable.

How you can get these gifts? check out our campaign's webpage at, where you will find all the information including the list of green books that are currently offered.

And don't forget to check out our funny promotional videos (part 1, part 2 and part 3)! are available now.
