BA encourages booksellers to go green

Posted on in Business News, Creative News

The Booksellers Association (BA) has created a Green Manifesto encouraging themselves, Booksellers and the Book Industry to improve their eco-friendliness.

This manifesto is based on three key principles:

1. The need for change to help prevent further environmental decline is urgent and permanent
2. There is much that individuals and organisations can do
3. There is much that the UK book supply chain can do

The BA has created a list of recommendations for booksellers that range from small in-store changes to making the step to review the sustainability of their supply chain. All booksellers are encouraged to take the Green Manifesto Pledge by committing to four of the twelve actions suggested by the BA and downloading the pledge logo to use within the business.

For a full list of the recommendations and more information on the BA Green Manifesto view the full document here.

Bookshops encouraged to enter Best Small Shops competition!

BookshoBest Small Shopsps are also encouraged to enter the Best Small Shops Competition by BA m.d. Meryl Halls: "We are really keen for bookshops to submit for the Best Small Shops Competition. We've had such a great showing over the last few years - The Main Street Trading Company won last year, and had a measurable impact from the win - and we have had bookshops shortlisted in the last two competitions, so we really hope we can carry on the over-representation of bookshops, who, after all, are very much the Best Small Shops in the UK. The competition brings together indie retailers from across the spectrum, and allows the best community-builders, place-makers and retail innovators to showcase the wonderful work they do on our high streets."
