Actually we just launched the One Tree Planted initiative at Assouline. Having witnessed the catastrophe that were the Amazonian fires we wanted to do our part to help our ecosystem and planet. With the One Tree Planted initiative we will plant one new tree in the Amazon for every book sold. I believe it’s everyone’s responsibility to help better the world we live in. onetreeplanted.org; assouline.com
