Cost Transparency & Sustainability

For Every purchase, is allocating a portion of the proceeds to plant a tree. Through a partnership with OneTreePlanted is committed to making a contribution to the health of our planet. It's thought of this way: a tree is cut down in order to make products like books, so why not plant a tree for every book sold? This system creates a virtuous cycle where the cutting down of a tree used to make many books results in many more trees, each book like a seed, helping the movement towards a better future take root.

The cost of this book is a bit higher than what might be expected. The reasons for this are several. As an extension of 's commitment to sustainable practice, the method by which this book is being produced is print-on-demand. This means there is no stock. A copy of this book is not physically produced until a purchase is made. Not only does this make sense from a business perspective, but it eliminates the enormous risk of waste that often results when traditional book production creates a large quantity of books that are never purchased or read. Print-on-demand solves this issue of waste in a powerful way. The tradeoff is that when copies are produced individually, the cost is quite a bit higher than the per-unit-price of mass production. A slight bummer, but the technology is still young and all signs point to print-on-demand as the way of the future. Chances are high that costs will come down as the technology continues to scale.

hopes you will consider these important details while perusing the bookstore. And keep in mind, when you give a Book as a gift to someone, you aren't just giving a book, you also get bragging rights: you get to say you planted a tree in that person's honor.
