Harry Potter Goes Green – Wizard!

Imagine all those Harry Potter books and all those trees! Worry not though because Green Futures reported in its May/June 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 US the seventh and final book in the wizarding adventure series has been printed on paper made of recycled fibre and sustainable Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) -certified virgin pulp.

JK Rowling is just one of many environmentally friendly authors. If you want to find out more about them then checkout the Greenpeace book campaign.

Finally, Adam has previously written about Green Metropolis which is a website he uses to buy used books and where you can also sell your old books. In the UK they pay £3 for every book you sell and you can buy most paperbacks for £3.75.
