Milkweed is committed to ecological stewardship. In addition to publishing books that explore our relationship with the more-than-human world, we strive to use the most sustainable production practices and to reduce the impact of our operations in the environment. Events are historically wasteful, but we are working closely with our partners to plan and execute a Book Lovers Ball that minimizes waste and reduces carbon emissions. This includes:
Eliminating single-use items
Composting or recycling all event materials
Using sustainable materials in all decor
Encouraging carpooling and public transportation use for staff and guests
Utilizing in-season and locally grown food and carefully gauging portions
Understanding our overall carbon footprint and reducing wherever possible
Thank you to our sponsors and partners for investing in writers, readers, and transformative books.
