Company Details/Accreditations

When you browse through the easy to use online catalogs looking for your next must-have book, you will swiftly realize the e-book revolution has NOT undermined this publishing and bookselling gem. Chelsea Green leads the publishing industry both in terms of content (this company prints and sells foundational books on renewable energy, sustainable building, organic gardening and agriculture, eco-cuisine, and ethical/green business) as well as in terms of environmental practice, (Chelsea is printing 95% of its books on recycled paper with a minimum 30% post-consumer waste). They print their books and catalogs on chlorine-free recycled paper, with soy-based inks whenever possible - They are quickly meeting their goal of 100%!
