Forest Friendly Books

 I happened to come across an excellent article that I wanted to share with you!
"Just in time for summer reading, we have released a list of 25 children’s books that are “rainforest-safe.” All books are printed on post-consumer recycled, FSC certified or recycled paper, allowing parents the assurance of knowing that their childrens’ books are not contributing to the loss of Indonesia’s or other endangered rainforests. The ‘rainforest-safe’ books list demonstrates that the publishing industry can build on the environmental commitments and progress it has already made and ensure kid’s and all books are rainforest safe."
 
Rainforest-safe books are not only possible; they are already being produced.
