Environmental Impact of Printing
New Society Publishers is one of the most environmentally friendly publishing companies on Earth and Rob is so happy to publish Dude Making a Difference with them. New Society Publishers is committed to building an ecologically sustainable and just society not just through education, but through action. Here are just a few of the actions they have committed to in order to protect our forests and the Earth as a whole:
Printing all their books on 100% post-consumer recycled FSC-certified paper. Post consumer means that it was used paper that was put into the recycle bin.
Using vegetable-based, low-VOC inks.
Making all of their major books available through their ebook program and many more.
Offsetting their emissions to make all of their business operations carbon neutral.
They were the first North American publisher to make such a commitment and they have since printed over half a million books this way. Through their lead by example actions they’ve helped start a revolution in the publishing industry. They were also the first North American publishing company to become carbon neutral. It goes further than just that though. Learn more about their environmental commitments here.
