Offering thousands of popular environmental education titles in eBook format, gives students, educators and parents the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the environment by conserving trees, bypassing fuel used and carbon emissions produced through trucking and overseas shipping and by circumventing paper and print manufacturing practices (among the most damaging to air, land and water in the United States.)
