Complete Test Preparation Inc. is pleased to announce our partnership with Eco-Libris to plant 400 trees have been planted using the highest ecological and sustainable standards in Latin America (Nicaragua, Guatemala, Panama, Belize, Honduras) and Africa (Malawi), where deforestation is a crucial problem. Eco-Libris administers the project by working with partners in developing countries who make sure that the trees are planted where they provide significant value for both the environment and the local communities.
The program is now being rolled out to new titles every month. as a way to showcase their commitment to environmental sustainability.
“More than 30 million trees are cut down annually for virgin paper used for the production of books sold in the U.S. alone,” said Raz Godelnik, chief executive officer of Eco-Libris. “By working with us, Complete Test Preparation Inc. is offering a simple and affordable way for consumers of the Complete Test Preparation Inc. catalog of 80 study guides to fund the planting of new trees for each title they buy. We strive for a world where reading books doesn’t have adverse effects on the environment, and achieve our mission to make reading much more sustainable than it is today.”
Planting trees not only helps to fight climate change and conserves soil and water, but also benefits many local people, for whom these trees offer many benefits, such as improvement of crops and additional food and income, and an opportunity for a better future.
Environmental consciousness is important for the continued growth of our company. In addition to eco-balancing each title, as a print on demand publisher, we only print units as orders come in, which greatly reduces excess printing and waste. This revolutionary printing technology also eliminates carbon emissions from trucks hauling boxes of books everywhere to warehouses. We also maintain a commitment to recycling any waste materials that may result from the printing process. We continue to review our manufacturing practices on an ongoing basis to ensure we are doing our part to protect and improve the environment.
Founded in 2007, Eco-Libris is a green company working with book lovers, bookstores, publishers and authors worldwide to green up the book industry by promoting the adoption of green practices, balancing out books by planting trees, and supporting green books.
