Mindful Of Our Environment
Our environmental mandate is to be mindful of the impact we make upon our environment and to minimize that impact as much as possible. Critics of our industry would attempt to expose us as great wasters, however, all unsold magazine and book product is shredded, bailed and transported to recycling facilities. In the case of hardcover, trade and children's books, the books are returned to publishers upon the manufacturer's request, as full-copy returns. We do everything within our power to encourage efficiencies and promote environmental sustainability.
