Act

Join us in campaigning for recycled paper in publishing:

For every 25 books printed, a tree is felled. In the UK, where an estimated 393.5 million books are printed every year, more than 15.74 million trees could be saved annually if the industry switched to using 100% post-consumer waste (PCW) paper.

Writers Rebel is uniquely placed to campaign for this to happen, with your help.

If you’d like to join our Paper Campaign Team to get UK publishers to make the switch, and you can spare a minimum of four hours a week, we’re looking for people with any of the following skills:

– Investigative research
– Campaign planning and implementation
– Event organisation
– Project management

To be part of this important shift, please email us at xrwritersrebel@gmail.com
