It sounds so simple, it’s a wonder it hasn’t been done before. Raz Godelnik, founder of Eco-Libris has told me how he’s joined up with author Tania Hershman and Salt Publishing in the UK to plant a tree for every copy of Tania’s new book.
The White Road and other Stories is a collection of stories inspired by real science articles and then taken further with a ‘what if?’ twist. Teaming up with Eco-Libris means the book is the first in the UK to be balanced out by having a tree planted for every copy printed – that’s right, not ‘sold’ but ‘printed’ meaning every copy will be balanced out.
All a good idea I think. You can find out more at Eco-Libris.
