No more Jungle Books

Disney books
 
Disney, one of the largest publishers of children’s books, has agreed to stop sourcing paper from High Conservation Value Areas. Tests by the Rainforest Action Network, showed over half of paper content from Disney books came from endangered tropical hardwoods. Disney will no longer buy from 2 Asian paper companies who’ve been blamed for destruction of Indonesian rainforests. Disney will also reduce paper consumption overall and maximize the use of recycled paper. This will eventually extend to all Disney items. That’s welcome news for animals like Shere Khan and King Louie - “Mancubs”, too!
