Recycled Paper Option

Status: Heard this before
by Hawah on ‎09-10-2012 11:11

I think it is essential that LULU starts offering its authors a Recycled Paper Option and/or at the minimum a acid free paper option from SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) certified mills and distributors.

All companies and authors should be considering how we can create less strain on the collapsing environment and promoting/ using more sustainable alternatives.  I think this would draw more authors to your company and help retain authors such as myself who have published with you in the past, but are seeking more eco-friendly alternavites.  

I hope you consider my suggestion, a little bit of work on our end... but more trees and fresh air for our children.

Hi Hawah - please see my previous response.

I would love to be able to print small runs of mass market (pocket book) sized books on cheap newsprint paper. I need to get the per-unit cost down and the bright-white of the current paper, while nice for some projects, really kills the mood of some of the genre titles we're trying to put out. Pretty please?
