Today, 200 bloggers from across the U.S. and Canada simultaneously posted 200 book reviews as a part of the 2nd annual Green Books Campaign. The goal is to increase awareness about how books are produced and to encourage consumers to consider the environment as they make purchasing decisions. Among the reviews are nine books from Washington State University Press, the first press from a higher education institution to be certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Eco-Libris, the campaign’s organizer, works to conserve ecosystems impacted by the book industry. The company promotes the adoption of green practices, plants trees to replace those used in book production, and provides media exposure for environmentally friendly titles. WSU Press answered four questions about their green practices in a profile interview on the Eco-Libris Blog.
A list of participating blogs and the books reviewed by each can be found on the Eco-Libris GBC page.
