Harry Potter on 100% post-consumer recycled paper

To the Distinguished J.K. Rowling: The petition of concerned university students of the United States of America brings to the attention of J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter publishers the strong request to have the seventh Harry Potter novel published on one hundred percent post-consumer recycled paper. WHEREAS, in 2003, Raincoast Books of Canada took the first steps towards environmental awareness by printing Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on one hundred percent post-consumer recycled paper; and WHEREAS, in 2005, numerous other publishers joined Raincoast Books in printing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on one hundred percent post-consumer recycled paper; and WHEREAS, it has been estimated by activist that these actions saved more than 28,000 trees; and WHEREAS, the largest publisher, Scholastic of the United States of America, and numerous other publishers have not fully committed themselves to the cause at hand; and WHEREAS, we, the undersigned, greatly appreciate the undisclosed and disclosed percentage of post-consumer recycled paper that Scholastic and other publishers do print upon, we feel that in light of today


This petition is one in a series of initiatives that Georgetown University students, in light of the 2006 International Earth Day, have enacted. The petition itself will expand beyond Georgetown\'s borders and when finalized will be presented to the British Embassy in the United States where it will then be presented to J.K. Rowling herself. It\'s a small task, but if effective will make a huge difference!
