Inherit the Earth

The world’s most widely circulated book is going green. No, not the latest Harry Potterit already did that in July when Scholastic printed it on paper that was at least 30 percent post-consumer waste fiber, with 65 percent of the paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. This time, it’s the Bible. Thomas Nelson is publishing the first FSC-certified Bible, The Charles Stanley Life Principles Daily Bible. Nelson is working with Green Press Initiative, which also helped Harry Potter get eco-friendly. The organization works with the book publishing industry to reduce its paper usage by using more recycled and FSC-certified paper and recycled fibers.
