Infinity partners with Eco-Libris to launch the first green program for self-publishing authors

We are happy to announce a new collaboration with Infinity Publishing, a leading self-publishing company. Infinity is launching this week with Eco-Libris the "100 Trees Project,"a new program to promote environmental sustainability among its authors.

Pioneer in author-originated book publishing, Infinity is also leading the way when it comes to going green by becoming the first company in the self-publishing category to make available to its authors a program of this nature!

Through the program, authors that publish with Infinity will be able to plant 100 trees for the title they publish. These authors will also have the option to add a special "100 trees planted for this book" logo to their book's design, as a way to showcase their commitment to environmental sustainability.

Infinity also announced that it kicks off the project by funding the planting of 1,000 trees! These trees will be planted by our planting partners in developing countries, where they provide significant value for both the environment and the local communities (as you could read this week on our report from Guatemala).

Founded in 1997, Infinity Publishing revolutionized the category of self-publishing by providing "author-originated book publishing" services for authors. Infinity now has more than 4,000 active authors who have collectively published more than 6,000 titles with the company. For more information , www.infinitypublishing.com.

This program is the first in a series of programs to be launched by Infinity that are designed to "give back" by making contributions to important causes related to the book publishing industry.

More details on the new partnership can be found on this press release.
