Do you ever think about all the trees it takes to make the books you read?
Pequeño Editor, a children’s book publisher in Argentina, certainly has and they have created a book that is meant to be planted to grow into a tree after reading it—“a book that returns to nature what it took from it.”
The book is made from acid-free paper that has seeds mixed in ad printed with biodegradeable ink. The seeds are the Jacaranda flowering tree, which is found in Central and South America.
