  5. Hey! Where did you get the bright idea of printing your experience with trees on Paper?
    When during your 365 days with trees, did you have this epiphany?

    How about making an E-Book and ask for donations for it,
    or just a PDF download… then people can be involved in the awareness of deforestation.

    Not be involved in Deforestation or the highly energy consumptive Recycling industry.

    Also I don’t think drawings of trees is a replacement for a trees… art on trees…. or trees alive…

    Such a hard choice to make!

    • It’s an excellent point. I hope to release an ebook version and I’m also looking into wheat chaff paper. http://stepforwardpaper.com/
      It’s conciderably more environmentally friendly than regular paper. The Step forward paper does contain 20% tree pulp at the moment. I want to create a book so when there’s a collapse of ‘civilisation’ – my book will still be readable. You also have to take into account the environmental impact of ebooks. There is infrastructure and pollution that goes hand in hand with any digital medium too.

      Thanks again!
