Forest of trees, photograph by Brent VanFossenIn a surprising bit of news, USATODAY.com reports authors are insisting on “Green” printing methods for books. It says “a small and growing number of authors are asking publishers to print their books on environmentally friendly paper.”

Authors are not only pushing their publishers and having it written in the contract to use recycled materials for publishing books, but many musicians like U2 and Bonnie Raitt are insisting on packaging their CDs in recycled materials.

According to the article, “Less than 5% of U.S. books are printed that way, says Tyson Miller of the Green Press Initiative, a group working to interest publishers and authors.”
