Environmental groups have drawn a growing number of noted authors, including J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter's author; Alice Walker; Isabel Allende; Barbara Kingsolver; Margaret Atwood; Michael Ondaatje; and the Canadian short-story writer Alice Munro, into their crusade to promote greater use of recycled paper. Several organizations, including the Green Press Initiative, in Ann Arbor, Mich., are in talks with religious groups with licenses to publish versions of the Bible. [...]
The forest-friendly publishing movement has gained much traction recently, with more than 85 small and medium-sized publishers in the United States having signed on to the effort so far, and a few major publishers poised to go in this direction, according to the Green Press Initiative. In Canada, 85 publishers have joined, 75 percent of that country's literary publishers, Ms. Rycroft said, including large houses there like Raincoast Books, as well as Random House and Doubleday in Canada.
Update: I forgot to mention that we have posted something similar about the previous tome of the Potter series. You can read it here. And yes, borrowing a copy from the library or a friend probably is the most eco-friendly way to read this book.
