Chelsea Green Publishing
Chelsea Green Publishing is a leading publisher of books on sustainable living, giving readers hands-on information related to organic farming, gardening, permaculture, ecology, the environment, simple living, food, sustainable business, and green building. Chelsea Green is an employee-owned independent publisher based in Vermont. Their purpose is to reverse the destruction of the natural world by challenging the beliefs and practices that are enabling this destruction and by providing inspirational and practical alternatives that promote sustainable living. They seek to reduce the ecological footprint of their publishing by printing on chlorine-free recycled paper, using soy-based inks whenever possible and using printers from North America to reduce the energy used in shipping. Chelsea Green includes an environmental impact statement in each book, identifying how may trees and how much wastewater, solid waste, and greenhouse gasses were conserved by using greener standards.
