ATTENTION all lit mag editors/small publishers

I'm happy to pass onto you the following information from the Green Press Initiative.  If you are interested in joining Random House and over a hundred small to mid-sized publishers in improving the book industry’s environmental impacts, like reducing greenhouse gases, here is what you can do right now:
 
*Review the Book Industry Treatise on Responsible Paper Use (developed by publishers, printers and mills), with your production and design team. A one page synopsis and background  are located here

*Sign on to the Treatise and commit to the goals of increasing recycled and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified virgin fiber.

*Include your policy or stated goals in all pricing requests with your suppliers Large scale changes are made as a result of a collective push forward. Improved availability and pricing of paper result from a demonstration of collective volume. The Treatise is the vehicle. Contact Erin Johnson or Tyson Miller for more help at www.greenpressinitiative.org .
