Greenpeace Urges U.S. to Buy CanadianHarry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Greenpeace and the U.S. National Wildlife Federation are urging American readers to buy the new Potter book from Canada.
The two environmental groups are protesting that unlike Canadian publisher Raincoast, American publisher Scholastic has failed to use 100% recycled paper. Scholastic representative Kyle Good responded with the following:
"We do not use any paper that uses fibre from ancient forests, ever, not only in the Harry Potter books but also in all the other materials that we produce. So we're not endangering forests."
