Imagine all those Harry Potter books and all those trees! Worry not though becauseÂ Green FuturesÂ reported in its May/JuneÂ issue that although it took 220,000 mature trees to print the US edition of The Half-Bood Prince in 2005; in 2007 things are much greener. In the USÂ the seventh and final book in the wizarding adventure seriesÂ hasÂ been printedÂ on paper made of recycled fibre and sustainable Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) -certified virgin pulp.
JK Rowling isÂ just one of manyÂ environmentally friendly authors. If you want to find out moreÂ aboutÂ them then checkout the Greenpeace book campaign.
