What's the connection between 18 miles of books, Julie and Julia, Robert Pattinson and Eco-Libris?

In one word: Strand.

Yes, we just wanted to remind you that if you happen to be in New York and you look for a good bookstore, then
Strand Bookstore is your place.

Located in
828 Broadway (at 12th St.), this New York's independent landmark bookstore is not only one of most famous bookstores in the world (Did you know that Nora Ephron shot a scene from the movie Julie and Julia at the Strand, or that Robert Pattinson plays Strand employee Tyler Hawkins in the new movie, Remember Me?), but also a partner of Eco-Libris.

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! And just to make sure you won't forget about the option to green up the book/s you just bought, you'll find next to the counters this reminder:

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: 828 Broadway (at 12th St.) New York, NY 10003
