Environmental Sustainability

Printers Row Publishing Group remains committed to finding and implementing sustainable production materials and methods to print our books. The majority of our books are currently printed on FSC paper, and we have started printing our best-selling Canterbury Classics with soy or mineral ink, which are much kinder to the environment. We will continue to explore options to increase our green footprint in the coming years.
