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.

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”!
