Suddenly, Earth-Friendly E-Readers Are Everywhere


E-book readers like the Amazon Kindle may be popular, but they're not as popular as iPods. Most folks have a hard time rationalizing dropping $300 on a device with limited capabilities that they're only going to have to spend more money on to fill with content. Now many are arguing that e-readers are not a flashy luxury, but yet another way for us to help protect the environment. Recent studies show that, especially for heavy readers, e-books can significantly reduce our carbon footprint and reduce the amount of trees felled to publish printed words.
