Organic Growth from Earth-Friendly Books

No April Fools here. More books are going eco-friendly--sometimes in the extreme.

The colorful, award-winning kids' books from Priddy Books are going greener all the time. (This means the company's organic growth is due to going organic.) Now Priddy prints with eco-friendly soy ink, on paper that is partly recycled and partly from sustainable forests. The company extensively tests its products to be sure they're child-safe and meet strict safety standards for U.S., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

Barnes & Noble features a collection of earth-friendly books here, by iKids. And now on the way: iPhone and iPod versions of kids' books from iKids Play, which save paper in the extreme by going directly to the screen. Will kids be more interested in Kindles and eReaders if they learn to read on a small screen?
