Our creative team was excited by the chance to turn a negative carbon footprint into a positive soul print
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 9, 2010
According to Publisher Jordana Woodland, when Pixie Press Worldwide discovered they could make their star-studded book launch party Carbon Neutral, she knew it would be inline with their green initiatives.
“We want to firmly establish ourselves as a publishing house that is committed to delivering luxury books and caring about the environment, so it made sense to offset the impact of our launch party,” said Woodland.
“Our creative team was excited by the chance to turn a negative carbon footprint into a positive soul print” — Ayn Carillo-Gailey, Editor-in-Chief
Already making strides with green initiatives for the printing of its first publication, Pixie Press Worldwide created ABOUT FACE with recycled paper containing post-consumer waste and manufactured using 100% wind power, plus used alcohol-free vegetable inks for printing. Moreover, the entire book was shot with obsolete vintage film, which did not require the manufacturing of new film to replace used rolls.
