Earth Day Display

Sunday (4/22/2012) is Earth Day, and the fine folks over at Better World Books thought it was a great time of year to release their top 10 “green” books:

1. Natural Capitalism
2. The Lorax
3. An Inconvenient Truth
4. Silent Spring
5. Moral Ground
6. The Better World Shopping Guide
7. Hot, Flat and Crowded 2.0
8. Farm City
9. The Responsibility Revolution
10. The Great Paper Caper

I’ve been a huge fan of BWB for a long time now.  They are a great way to recycle your library’s weeded books.  Better World Books collects and sells books online to donate books and fund literacy initiatives worldwide.   To date, the company has raised over $10 million for libraries and literacy, and diverted millions of books from landfills.  Now how’s THAT for being green?
