Green Publishing Plan

Publish Eco-Friendly Plantable Books

At Writersgram we believe in innovation with sustainability, and thus have introduced Green Books. These books can be reused after reading to grow beautiful plants since we make them with plantable paper. The best part is that they are 100% handmade and help us in supporting local artisans.

What exactly are these Green Books?

Under our Green Publishing initiative, we have introduced Green Books. Green Books are just like your normal, regular books with a few changes which make them eco-friendly and help us give back to the environment. The book covers are made from plantable paper which can be later used to grow plants. The reader, after reading the book, can tear off a part from the cover (a small part of the cover would be marked for this like in the above image), plant it in the soil and it will grow like any other plant. The plantable paper works as seed, since it is made from recycled paper and seeds. We currently have basil and marigold available. 

To add to the green initiative, we have collaborated with some local artisans who produce these books in a totally handmade manner without using any electricity/ diesel run machines for cutting and binding. Thus, when you publish and your readers purchase a green book, you not only give back to the environment, but also help us to support the local artisans.
