If you’re searching for more eco-friendly summer reading material, look no further than New Society Publishers.

The New Society Difference
A number of publishing companies produce ecologically and socially responsible books, but not all of these publishers are willing to ‘walk the talk’. New Society is committed to improving the planet and society by not only educating through their publications, but by also actively practicing those principles.
- Since 2001, New Society books have been published on acid-free, 100% post consumer recycled FSC certified paper using plant-based ink.
- New Society became the first carbon neutral North American publisher in 2005.
- Locally made PCF recycled paper is used for all office needs and company recycling programs reduce company waste.
- A portion of profits is regularly donated to local food shelters.
- Books are frequently donated to charitable fundraising efforts, as well as local prisons.
