Are e-books “green”? Are they the environmentally friendly way to go?
I have not heard of any research about this – have you? I think it would be useful if an environmental specialist gave an opinion – do you know anyone who would be an appropriate person to ask about doing the research?
I live in the beautiful Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire and I am surrounded by trees including ancient woodland. Any time I hear a chain saw my heart aches – I hate trees being killed – it just seems so wrong to me. They are living creatures and many of them pre-date those of us alive today.
But, then you do also need to understand that I do hug trees – unashamedly! Yes, I am proud to be a tree hugger. They are most wonderful living, breathing entities with a soul I believe.
If you hug a tree make it a big one as they can tolerate the stress that comes out of our bodies better than young trees. Why not give it a go yourself? Just put your arms around a tree and relax into it. The tree will take your stress and anxiety and transport it away from you and into the earth. It is a marvellous experience.
Whilst my books are still available in paperback via my website:
they are also going on to Kindle and other e-book readers as fast as possible. To me saving paper by converting to e-books has to be better for the planet.
Am I wrong?
