TreeHugger Names Chelsea Green Best Green Publisher!

Hey, Chelsea Green Fans—great news! TreeHugger, that inter-Web bastion of sustainable living, has just released their First Annual Best of Green list—and <smug>guess who made the cut</smug>.

From TreeHugger:

So the staff at TreeHugger put their heads together to do one mighty feat: Select the best of the best, the greenest of the green, in the world of culture and celebrity, travel and nature, cars and transportation, science and technology, food and health, business and politics, and let’s not forget fashion and beauty. While you may not agree with all of our picks — and feel free to vent your love and your wrath in the Forums — all are undeniably cutting-edge on the eco front. […]

Best Green Publisher: Chelsea Green

The go-to publisher for all things sustainable, Chelsea Green “wrote the book” and now owns the online social media bailiwick with the same green gusto, weblog feeds to short-form tweets. The catalog of 400 plus titles includes Naomi Wolf’s The End of America, and George Lakoff’s bestseller Don’t Think of an Elephant!, a handy guide for framing the debate when chatting up Fox News fans. Definitive authors cover green building, organic agriculture, energy, fair trade, and toxic products–all printed on recycled paper. “Tiny but politically mighty,” says Publisher’s Weekly. Must-have titles like Mark Schapiro’s Exposed prove it is sized just right. -R.C.

Bonus points: at the end of the slideshow, don’t forget to vote Chelsea Green for “Best in Show”!
