New Publishing Company Committed To Green Philosophy

Nov 14, 2013

You’ve heard the term localvore as it relates to growing, producing and buying your food locally. But now a Vermont publishing company has adopted the philosophy.

Green Writers Press has pledged that all of their books will be printed in Vermont, using environmentally friendly processes.

And it promises to focus on topics that spread a message of environmental activism.

Dede Cummings of Brattleboro is the founder of Green Mountain Press, and is also an occasional VPR commentator.

She says the company will utilize local print-on-demand services utilizing post-consumer waste paper instead of virgin timber.

Cummings is excited that Vermont author Howard Frank Mosher has signed on as a contributor and advisor.
