[greenyes] Canada Printer Uses Recycled Paper for Harry Potter
DAILY GRIST - 09 Jun 2003 <>

The Canadian edition of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"
-- to be released later this month as the fifth book in J.K.
Rowlings' phenomenally popular series -- has been printed on
chlorine-free, 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper.  With a
first print run of 935,000 copies, this is by far the largest recycled
printing in Canadian history.  Rowlings endorsed the move with a
note in the front of the Canadian edition and urged other publishers
to follow the lead of Raincoast Books, her Canadian publisher.
Nicole Rycroft of Markets Initiative, an environmental coalition in
British Columbia, says 35 other major Canadian publishers are
considering printing on recycled paper, as are publishers in Britain,
Germany, and Italy.  "It's a good business decision," Rycroft said,
"they're seeing the kind of positive publicity it can bring."  Recent
books by Canadian authors Alice Munro and Margaret Atwood
have also been printed on recycled stock.
