Have you been introduced to Barefoot Books? I have a whole library of their books, but just become an ambassador. I’d love to introduce you to these books!
About Barefoot Books:
Barefoot Books was created in 1992 by two moms who wanted to have meaningful and creative careers that could truly make an impact on the world. Today, Barefoot Books is an independent publisher with offices in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Oxford, UK. Barefoot Books specializes in carefully crafted children’s books, CDs, games, puppets, puzzles and gifts that celebrate enduring values and inspire creativity. As a small, passionately committed team, we bring expertise, enthusiasm and close attention to every product we make. At the heart of everything we do are our core values: imagine, explore, create, connect, and give back.
Now as a “green” mom, I recognize that books are made of paper. Here’s some information about Barefoot Books and sustainability:
Paper is core to a publisher’s business. We want to protect the world’s remaining ancient forests and ensure that the forestry and paper manufacture undertaken on behalf of Barefoot Books is ethical and legal. The welfare of the people involved in and affected by the supply of paper to Barefoot Books is also of paramount importance to us. Our printers do not use paper that contains pulp from illegal or unsustainable sources in the manufacture of our books. We are increasingly using paper that has been graded 3* by the PREPS Grading System or certified by the FSC, the gold standard in forest management and responsibly sourced paper. We continue to work with our suppliers to improve the environmental credentials of our products. Our board books and activity books are made using recycled paper. See www.prepsgroup.com and www.fsc.org for more information.
All of the ink used by Barefoot Books printers is vegetable based.
Barefoot Books print suppliers have systems in place to feed paper offcuts and wastage back into their supply chain. Plus, packaging is made from recycled material and recycled again after use. Barefoot Books recycles as much as possible in our own offices and Studios.
