HARPER COLLINS GOES GREEN
HarperCollins to print entire paperbacks on green grown paper
In a move that now sees the majority its books printed on environmentally-friendly paper, HarperCollins Publishers UK announced today that it will be printing its entire mass market paperback list on FSC paper. Its first green mass market paperback - The Loner by Josephine Cox - hits bookshop shelves today. From October onwards all books on the paperback trade lists will be printed on FSC. Together with the hardbacks, trade paperbacks and selected four colour titles already printed on FSC and recycled papers, this will mean that 33m books, almost 55% of all books produced by HCUK, will now be on environmentally-friendly paper.
