Eco-Libris: The Guiltless Gift

Published August 30, 2007 Posted by
Have a big reader on your gift list? Tired of buying corporate gift cards? Here's a twist: help your reader reduce their footprint (or is it spine print) on the planet with Eco-Libris. For every book you read, you can "balance it out" by paying Eco-Libris to plant a tree for you. And it's cheap: five bucks to balance out five books. A buck a book. There's a slight break the higher you go, but seriously, this is cheaper than my state tax on a single book, and I have NO idea where that money even goes (although the nightly news does give some indication). The goal of EcoLibris is grand: "We want to balance out half a million books by the end of 2008." Okay folks, let's get started!
