August Special: Eco-Libris

Eco-Libris ( is a new green biz that lets book readers balance out the paper used for their books.

Eco-Libris helps book lovers go green and plant a tree for every book they read. About 20 million trees are being cut down every year to produce paper for books sold in the U.S. alone. By partnering with non-profit organizations in developing countries, Eco-Libris can now invite readers to do something about it in its new website.

Eco-Libris is running a special contest to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. As you may know, the new Harry Potter books are being published on partially or fully recycled paper worldwide. So for Eco-Libris, Harry Potter is not only a great story; it also sets an example for the future of the book publishing industry, and a vision which we share. To show their appreciation to the courageous author and to the young magician Eco-Libris will be celebrating by letting Harry Potter fans plant new trees and win a free copy of the book made of 100% recycled paper.

To participate in "Eco-Libris and The Green Wizards" promotions, Harry Potter fans need to send a picture of themselves posing with any of the books in the series. The first 50 people to do so will receive a special gift - seven trees planted for them in developing countries, to balance out seven of their books in honor of the seven books in the Potter series. They will also receive seven Eco-Libris stickers saying “One Tree was Planted for This Book” to be proudly displayed on their books' sleeves.

Judges will pick the best photo of all and send a free copy of the new Harry Potter, printed on 100% recycled paper, to the gifted photographer.
